Get Hounslow Reading

Get Hounslow Reading is a long-term borough-wide commitment to improving children’s life chances through inspiring them to read and to ensure reading is at the heart of its provision for all children.

The skill – how to read, is being addressed through using SSPs in Primary schools. Revisiting the training and expectations of best practise in Phonics and early reading teaching and reinforcing the mandate to ensure every child is taught to read in Primary school.

 The will – what to read, when to read, wanting to read above any other activity now needs to be addressed and considered with the same rigour as teaching Phonics and early reading. The Reading for Pleasure (RfP) pedagogy is a living pedagogy that is crafted from an evidence base and continues to be reviewed and researched by the Open University.  

The Project

Length: 3 year minimum

  • Kick-off Summer 2021 involving Headteachers and SLT, to identify RfP teachers in each school to be part of the project.
  • 1st workshop to introduce the project and gain commitment from the teacher

We will run three groups:

  • EYFS and KS1
  • LKS2 Years 3 & 4
  • UKS2 Years 5 & 6

We will also launch:

  • Contingent talk with books – a catch-up early language and reading project to run in Nursery and Reception

What our members say

Meet the Expert – Art Workshop – "Good delivery and alternative resource options provided. There were clear explanations and questions to ask children were also provided."

Middle Leader Training – "Very inspiring leaders who answered all questions without making you feel at all silly. Loved it."

Deep Dive Subject Leader Training – "I so enjoyed the course. It made me realise how much I have to do in History, but so reassuring to have someone who knows what he is talking about!"

Develop your A Level Teaching – "Collaboration is a huge part of this project; CPD and teacher training works best when you’re doing it alongside colleagues. The 4 HEP principles make it clear to teachers what the bare bones of an excellent lesson look like."
