Development Days

We get hands-on, you get results  

Our trainers visit you during a normal school day to support your management team, staff and children. Existing schools benefit from at least one Development Day per year. New schools find that one Development Day per term helps get them off to a secure start. We also provide more intensive support for schools requiring improvement.

On Phonics and Fresh Start Development Days we:

  • Analyse assessment and pupil progress
  • Set up a cycle of Practice Sessions
  • Discuss coaching and action steps
  • Demonstrate tutoring with your slowest progress readers
  • Train one-to-one tutors
  • Lead staff workshops.

On Literacy and Language Development Days we:

  • Set up a cycle of masterclasses and observations
  • Scrutinise log books and marking with the Literacy and Language leader
  • Discuss whole school marking policy
  • Lead staff workshops.


Our Development Days were recently graded outstanding by the DfE. Read the full inspection report and summary.
