Empowering Struggling Readers and Writers in the Primary Phase
This day is suitable for all primary teachers, Teaching Assistants, SENDCos and English Subject Leaders who wish to disseminate this information back in school.
Pupils with Special Educational Needs and Disability (SEND) have the greatest need for excellent teaching and are entitled to provision that supports achievement at, and enjoyment of, school.
The key question is not, ‘What is most effective for pupils with dyslexia?’ The key question becomes, ‘What does this individual pupil need in order to thrive?’ Supporting pupils with special educational needs should be part of a proactive approach to supporting all pupils – it is not an ‘add on’. It means understanding the specific barriers pupils face to learning and what they need in order to thrive so that they can be included in all that the school has to offer. (EEF)
It is evident that supporting pupils who struggle with reading and writing is a big focus for many schools – more so now than ever before. It is essential that we fine-tune our provision to ensure all pupils make great progress and no child is left behind.
This session will:
- Explore ways to scaffold literacy effectively to ensure pupils who struggle in English make good progress.
- Examine the concept of neurodiversity and include strategies to support pupils with dyslexia.
- Consider the Education Endowment Fund’s ‘Five a Day’ approach to improve SEND outcomes in your school.
