High Impact Teaching: Supporting Secondary Pupils with reading difficulties 24-25

High Impact Teaching Series aimed at supporting teachers to develop their expertise in teaching reading to support struggling readers in secondary schools.

Ofsted’s recent report on English recommended that staff who support the weakest readers know how to identify reading difficulties and act on it.
This three part programme will support teachers develop strategies to diagnose what specifically pupils are finding difficult, address specific gaps in pupils’ phonics knowledge, improve reading fluency. The programme will support teachers to develop their understanding of the research, modelling key strategies and supporting teachers’ deliberate practice back in school so that it leads to lasting change in their classroom and improved outcomes for struggling readers.
This programme is delivered by primary and secondary experts following our High Impact Series guidelines.
The Reading Framework (DfE) and Ofsted’s recent report on English both highlight fluency as a gap in learning across Keystages 1 – 3.
Keystage 3 teachers don’t have the same opportunities for training in early reading and a programme tailored to meeting the needs of this Keystage specifically would be beneficial.
The beliefs, knowledge and or teaching practices this programme aims to address
  • Teachers will be further educated on best practice for the classroom linked to recent research and pedagogy.
  • Each session will include ideas that can be embedded into existing practice to meet the needs of schools and their schemes of work and plans.
Intended Impact on Practice
  • Changes to practice will support pupils to make best possible progress in English and across the curriculum with better accessibility to reading materials.
Intended improvement and/or evaluation of impact for pupils, including those with SEND and/or disadvantaged backgrounds
  • Changes to practice will support pupils to make best possible progress in English and across the curriculum with better accessibility to reading materials and an increase in confidence.
Success Criteria
