Hub Home Page
The Department for Education has appointed 32 English Hub schools to promote a love of reading and provide support and guidance for phonics and early language teaching.
Schools within Redcar and Cleveland; Hartlepool; Middlesbrough; Stockton and Sunderland are invited to a free Open Event to explore effective early language development; systematic synthetic phonics provision; and the promotion of a love of reading.
Each Open Event will include:
- Sessions focusing on early language and vocabulary development; effective synthetic phonics provision; and creating a rich reading culture across school;
An opportunity to see and discuss effective practice in the teaching of phonics and early reading;
Support to begin auditing and evaluating your own provision in order to develop an action plan;
Details of how to apply for Hub funding to develop your school’s effective teaching of phonics and early reading (up to £3,000 match funded of £6,000 unmatched, subject to specific criteria).
Funding will be provided for travel and supply cover for up to two delegates from each school (£150 pp), one of whom MUST be a member of the school’s SLT.
