Affinity TSA welcomes English Leaders, Headteachers and Aspirant English Leaders to our annual sharing event.
We are offering 1 FREE PLACE to each school in AffinityTSA
(Additional places charged at £35 per person)
At our event, we will cover the following areas:
• Share findings and FREE resources developed by SLEs in 2016.17 in two key areas of research

  • Impactful Subject Leadership - What is the most effective strategy that subject leaders employ to enhance whole school English outcomes? How do you ensure you are being effective with resourcing, planning and monitoring and how reflective are you as a leader? This year we have developed an Impact focused toolkit that can be used in school. We’ve combined current and existing thinking and resources to develop the complete resource for English leaders in the alliance that can be used in school and shared more widely.
  • Talk for Reading - Based on a ‘Talk for Reading’ approach, we have developed a toolkit of effective resources and ideas, to be used in our own schools and across Affinity. We’ll share what works well already and explore the ways in which new research has positively impacted on our practice during our collaborative. You will leave the session armed with ideas and resources to enhance reading provision in your own school.

• Provide a brief overview of current policy and research news
• Consult schools on the professional learning gaps for 2017.18
In addition to this we also welcoming Lynsey Pickton from Project X Reading (supported by Oxford University Press) who will lead an afternoon session for schools focussing on:
Using the power of talk to develop inference, critical thinking and other higher-level comprehension
• Reducing workload through straightforward planning
• Grouping your class to catch struggling children and stretch high-achievers
• Develop discussion and reading for pleasure
• Use Project X Origins as an effective guided reading programme

This full day will be hosted by Affinity TSA Specialist Leaders and will include lunch and refreshments during the day.
