Reading for Pleasure Conference

On our training day today, all the staff (teachers and teaching assistants) attended our Reading for Pleasure (RfP) conference at school.  We listened to live online Key Note sessions from leaders in this area at the Open University, and then Mrs Marsh (our RfP leader) led some workshops too.  The feedback from staff has been very positive and we have already seen lots of the ideas being implemented in classrooms and shared with children.


We have 5 training days a year as part of our contracts (children do 190 days in school and teachers do 195 days).  It is really important that we keep ourselves up to date with current best practice and have time to put improvements into our school pedagogy.  RfP is a priority on our school development plan (SDP) this year (all SDP priorities are on the school website).
