Intensive Support

Intensive School Support 

In addition to our Medium Level Support offer, eligible schools can also benefit from further intensive support from our English Hub.  

Schools that meet two of the following DfE criteria, will be prioritised for intensive support: 

  • Lower than average percentage of pupils meeting the expected standard in the 2022 Phonics Screening Check (PSC). 

  • A  higher than average proportion of children eligible for Pupil Premium. 

  • Ofsted judgement of Requires Improvement or Inadequate. 

  • Schools referred by Local Partners. 

  • Schools in an Education Investment Area (EIA) - (Lincolnshire & Nottinghamshire)

Partner Schools

Our 'Partner Schools' will receive 12 intensive school support days, over a 2 year period, with one of our experienced Literacy Specialists.  

As a Partner School, your school's assigned Literacy Specialist will spend each support day working alongside the Headteacher and Reading/Phonics Lead for the day, exploring elements of teaching and learning, assessment, phonics provision, early language and Reading for Pleasure provision.

Your Literacy Specialist will offer support, feedback and guidance, whilst modelling to staff and providing on the spot coaching to develop teaching and build an 'expert team of phonics teachers'. 

Partner Schools will receive £150 ‘back-fill’ after each Literacy Specialist Support day to cover supply costs for the Reading / Phonics Leader's release time.  

All Partner Schools are entitled to a phonics audit and up to £6000 funding over a two-year period.
