This course shares the transformational literacy journey of a school.

  • How to develop exciting ways to implement whole school literacy events
  • How to develop whole-school classroom approaches to literacy

Feedback from teachers on this course

Absolutely loved this course, especially being new to the post of whole school Literacy and Interventions.
Raj was professional, upbeat and very open about how they have implemented Literacy, especially reading, in her school. She has given us lots of practical strategies to trial out and I found the discussions helpful. I am definitely going to implement these strategies.
I thoroughly enjoyed this course. Raj clearly knows her stuff and the literacy she has shared with us was very valuable. I will be feeding back to my SLT next week.
Fantastic suggestions and tips. Very practical strategies that can be implemented across all different types of schools.
As Literacy Intervention Leader for my school, I'm feeling very inspired to actually make a difference.
