The Somerset Literacy Network (SLN) continues to go from strength to strength.
We offer support directly to schools and also through a Framework Agreement with Resources for Learning Gold and Gold Star subscribers.
Word of mouth recommendations have led to SLN hubs being started in:
The SLN supports Literacy Subject Leaders through twilight meetings run at different locations each term. These meetings give Subject Leaders the opportunity to network with each other and gain updates on local and national issues.
Schools within the SLN have access to a wide range of resources and materials to support the continued improvement of literacy teaching. Many of these resources have been developed directly as a result of requests from SLN schools and relevant materials continue to be made available on a regular basis.
The range of minimum cost training available exclusively to SLN schools has been extended and developed. Aspects of literacy covered in these workshops include phonics and spelling, grammar subject knowledge, supporting writing, extending vocabulary, Guided Reading to develop comprehension, the role of the Subject Leader, using data and support for NQTs. Any of these workshops can be run in your local area, or can be offered as twilight sessions for individual schools.
