Showcase Events – Thursday 2nd December 2021 and Thursday 3rd February 2022
We are now in our third year of supporting schools as an English Hub and would like to welcome you into our school to see phonics teaching in action, hear the key messages of the English Hub Programme and access our support.
We are offering two free events for Head Teachers and Reading Leaders to learn about the work of the English Hubs, see phonics teaching in action and find out how you can access our support on Thursday 2nd December 2021 and Thursday 3rd February 2022.
