Event details


This CPD programme is fully funded by the Barnsley Schools Alliance Board. There is no charge to schools to participate and no limit to the number of people you can book on.

The programme will be delivered through a ‘train the trainer’ approach and schools will therefore need to:

  •  Identify Middle Leaders who are able to train staff in school (Autumn term 2 x 2 hour webinars).
  •  Allocate staff meetings/CPD time for staff training.
  •  Provide the identified Middle Leaders with the time to participate in future training, time to support school staff and time for on-going communication and liaison with facilitators.

The key to becoming a successful reader is through the mastery of phonics. Over recent academic years, schools have been working hard to ensure that children keep up in their phonics programme and don’t have to
catch up. During the period of COVID-19, a significant number of pupils have not been able to access the rigorous teaching that enables them to keep up and upon returning to school, will have a significant amount of catching up to do. This 2 x 2 hour programme will:

  • Provide Middle Leaders with the support to lead the teaching of phonics throughout school.
    Help teachers identify the barriers that children may face when returning to school, how to identify these quickly and plan teaching so that children are able to catch up.
  • Provide ideas to ensure that the classroom environment and teaching strategies support rapid learning.

Following an initial 2 hour training period, Middle Leaders will be provided with training materials to disseminate in their own school. Throughout the academic year, there will be access to a virtual platform to network and share ideas with colleagues in other schools
and access support from the facilitators.
