Support for schools, academies and partnerships to develop all aspects of Primary English

My 20+ years' experience in teaching and leading English and supporting schools, academies and partnerships with a variety of CPD approaches means that we can work together to plan a support package best suited to your priorities to gain maximum impact.

"I just wanted to say a big thank you for the staff meeting today and all of the help you have given me this year. I really couldn’t have implemented everything without all of your help, ideas and support. I really appreciate it all."

"The teachers across the school are now much more confident at teaching reading and lessons observed have been much stronger and really focused on delivering key reading skills.  We feel that the work with Susie has strengthened the teaching of reading across the school."

"I have tried your method for writing for the first time over the last couple of weeks and I am overwhelmed by how well it has turned out. I am excited about feeding back to school and sharing the experience so that they can also move forward. I just wanted to say a massive thank you for your guidance and support."

Support for individual schools, academies and partnerships could include:

  • Staff training to develop all aspects of the English curriculum, coupled with highly effective pedagogical approaches

  • Collaborative planning for all aspects of English, e.g. text-based ‘learning journeys’, whole class guided reading, effective teaching of spelling , bespoke interventions...

  • Collaborative teaching experiences with teachers and TAs

  • Assessment and moderation across Key Stages 1 and 2

  • Subject Leader support to develop impactful leadership of English across the school

  • Data analysis and action planning

  • Joint monitoring

  • Subject-specific ‘health checks’ and reviews

  • Parent workshops

  • Reading intervention training – Project X CODE and Better Reading Support Partners

  • Training and advice for leaders and governors

This is not an exhaustive list. I am very happy to discuss your school's priorities and work with you to design a bespoke package of support. Contact me here to find out more.
