More information about our intended bid
Good Morning All,
I trust you had a good weekend. Just to bring you up to date on our intended second bid for money to support your school improvement, the bid is written to raise attainment in KS2 reading.
There will be a core offer for all schools (if the bid is successful) which will include among other things, specialist support for each school via a partnered school, various CPD and other useful resources. We are planning on covering supply costs for you as part of the bid and we are also looking into providing each school with funding for specific resources should you need them.
We are also going to provide a ‘menu’ of twilights/half day sessions on best practice in various linked areas e.g. parental involvement, pupil progress meetings, tracking systems etc which you can opt to attend. We are also going to ask schools to be part of small pilot projects to trial ideas suggested as high impact through the Education Endowment Fund as well as running a pilot around ‘Reading Reconsidered’. We are also encouraging Secondary Schools to join in this work.
We are looking for 50 primary schools to be part of the project and should we be ‘oversubscribed’ then priority will be given to primary schools with less than 50% reading attainment in 2017. You will have chance to get a good look at the offer if the bid is successful to understand the full commitment.
In the meantime I cannot urge you enough to sign the attached form if you are looking for reading school improvement.
Have a good week and see you soon
P.S. If I am difficult to get hold of in the next week or so it’s because I’m up to my ears in bid writing!
