Leading On - Whole school literacy

This session provides a useful introduction to the responsibility of leading on a whole school literacy strategy.

Using statistical data on a national level, the session will explore what an effective whole school literacy provision looks like, the impact  it can have across the whole curriculum, and on helping primary pupils  make a successful transition to secondary education.

The webinar will discuss ways to get started on developing a plan for whole school literacy, including how to undertake an audit to prioritise actions.

Strategies, best practice, and tips on how to lead effectively on literacy across all areas of the school will  be discussed.

The session will  also cover how to measure impact and explore how to use data more effectively.

The impact of Covid-19 on this area of school leadership will be taken into consideration.
