Primary School Literacy Support

Literacy specialists can work with teachers to improve teaching and learning throughout the school. By modelling inspirational lessons for teachers, class teachers are then supported with planning and delivering a follow up lesson with support and feedback from a Literacy Specialist. Teachers will develop their confidence whilst also developing ideas to engage children with the English curriculum.

As part of the support there is also the opportunity to include staff meetings, training, leadership support and literacy audits for the whole school. Based on the cost of a basic daily rate, we can design a bespoke support package specifically to meet the needs of your school and can cover all aspects of the English Curriculum or concentrate on developing a priority area.
