Using this element
This element is designed to secure improvement over a six-week period. Your department can use it flexibly depending on its key priorities. It outlines:
- a process for improving the teaching of reading and writing skills
- ways to develop the climate for learning to help pupils be more functional and independent and to remove barriers to their learning.
This six-week improvement process focuses on how to improve the quality of teaching and learning, the climate of learning and the promotion of progression and independence. By matching teaching approaches to pupils’ needs, improved teaching will engage all learners and help pupils achieve rates of progress in English.
Senior and subject leaders can find the outcomes and long-term benefits of using these quality standards as part of this six-week improvement process.
