Showcase Events

Our Showcase will provide you with the opportunity to:

  • Find out more about our intended approach to the support you may be offered
  • Undertake a learning walk and experience best practice in terms of phonics teaching
  • Begin to complete your schools action plan which will set out your plans for improvement and include any request for resource support
  • Establish networks with like-minded colleague.

Our showcase events are open to a wide range of primary schools and infant schools. However, we prioritise our engagement with schools based on the following criteria. We use this to prioritise applications:

  • The last published Phonics Screening Check result is below the published national average (2019 PSC expected standard is 82%)
  • Ofsted judgement of Requires Improvement or Inadequate
  • The numbers of pupils eligible for the Pupil Premium is above the most recently published national average (2018/19 the pupil premium national average is 22.9%)
  • The school is in an Opportunity Area
  • A school referred through by an NLE
