Our whole school focus over the duration of our new 3-year business plan is to improve students’ outcomes in Reading. Last week we began our journey in this area with our staff participating in the first session on the Science of Reading. The session covered the current research on the teaching of reading and the science behind how children learn to read. The subsequent sessions will lay the foundation for our work as a staff in developing whole-school approaches to the teaching of Reading. Our staff will participate in their second session this term. We look forward to continuing to update you on our progress in this key improvement area.
