1. About training and support for secondary schools

We work with your schools to implement the Fresh Start training and support package to help secondary schools ensure:

  • struggling readers learn to read accurately, and at a sufficient pace to access the curriculum
  • the teaching of reading is rigorous, consistent and of the highest quality
  • leaders keep track of pupils’ reading progress – and act on the data – to ensure long-term success.

RMT trust trainers analyse reading data every half term to provide trust leaders with actions that will have the most impact on students’ progress. They propose a practice and coaching plan for each school and discuss implementation on Development days with reading leaders.

We prioritise the teaching of reading in our school. One in four of our students start Year 7 reading below their chronologic age: in line with the national average. Fresh Start helps them catch up quickly and enthusiastically.”
