Reading and Vocabulary Strategies

Through weekly training, every primary colleague and secondary English teacher in the Trust has now become an expert in the teaching of reading enabling the children in our academies to become resilient and fluent readers. Consequently, at all key stages, our children are reading a wide range of challenging texts closely, including non-fiction, and are writing more fluently and effectively in direct response to text. In Phase 2 this academic year, we are working in close collaboration with the EEF and Bradford Research School so that all practice is driven by the best possible evidence and strategies which have a proven impact.


Our leadership development programmes extend from middle leadership through to executive leadership. This year has seen an expansion of our leadership development offer, with high numbers of aspirant leaders taking part in National Professional Qualifications offered in partnership with Ambition Institute. We continue to invest in training experienced leaders from within the Trust to become facilitators for the NPQ Alliance and equip participants with the skills and attributes required for success.  Click here for NPQ information

As well as offering the NPQs, we also offer one day, bespoke training on key leadership themes, such as PowerBI, Human Relations and Finance, across the region and the UK. Please contact us if you would like further information.
