Rachel has teamed up with Consultant and friend, Sharon Sadler to lead the new, “Leading Children to Literacy” programme starting in 10 Bradford Secondary Schools in July. Fully funded and backed by Provident Financial Services, this programme will bring together our passions for literacy, mindset and creative culture for learning to make a huge difference to the lives and schooling of hundreds of secondary age children.
We have begun a pilot programme at One in a Million Free School where every member of staff, not just the English team, are incorporating the strategies and challenges we offer as part of the programme. The students are already responding positively to it and love the collaborative mastery approach it fosters. Our huge thanks go out to Karen (Head of English) and Lynn (English Teacher) for their hard work, enthusiasm and their phenomenal subject knowledge as they manage the programme for us in school! We are learning loads!
Mostly, our thanks to Cathy Prior at Provident who’s commitment to changing literacy in Bradford has been an inspiration! She believes in us and her trust and compassion spur us on!
