After such a difficult year, schools are now faced with the challenge of closing the gap in educational achievement in English. It is becoming apparent that the already prevalent gap in achievement of pupils living in poverty has widened following the pandemic. Many pupils will have experienced ‘learning loss’ over the last year but for disadvantaged pupils the effect is particularly pronounced. It is evident that catch up is a key focus for many teachers and school leaders.
In addition, Ofsted will now pay particular attention to pupils who are reading below age related expectations to assess how well the school is teaching phonics and supporting all children to become confident, fluent readers. This session will examine:
- Strategies and resources for supporting pupils who have gaps in phonic knowledge and skills.
- Phonics terminology and subject knowledge.
- Materials to support assessment and screening for phonics as well as progression through the phases.
