Early Reading Audits
Expert advice and support for eligible schools from one of our DfE-trained Literacy
Specialists. Our audits help leaders to identify current good practice, highlight
areas for development and plan clear, achievable next steps towards outstanding
phonics and early reading provision.
The audit process lasts one day, for which eligible schools can claim
for the release
of the Reading/Phonics Leader.
Outline of the Audit Process:
Preliminary conversation with the school's SLT to
decide on school priorities.
Learning walk with Reading/Phonics leader & SLT
to review phonics teaching and early reading
Self-assessment of school's provision using latest
guidance from the English Hub Council and Ofsted.
Literacy Specialist co-writes an action plan with
the Reading/Phonics Leader, making clear
actionable next steps to improve the provision.

"It was great to be able ask questions to someone so knowledgeable and
the practical ideas for further improvements will be quick to organise and
effective in the long-term."
