About this course

This course will explore how leaders of literacy and English can ensure they do the best for all their students, and will cover areas such as literacy across the curriculum to support students’ learning in other subjects, as well as making sure students gain knowledge in sufficient depth, while developing their love of English.

Throughout the day, we will investigate how to make ambitious and deliberate choices about the essential knowledge pupils need to know by the end of their journey in English language and literature, as well as how to manage and support staff to ensure consistency and cohesion.

We will consider:

  • How to recognise what outstanding looks like in the English classroom
  • Ways to ensure leaders’ have clear intentions for the curriculum
  • The choices we make as to which texts to critique
  • The identification of effective pedagogy in English lessons, to guarantee students fulfil their potential
