The Importance of Teaching White Paper outlines the Government’s strategy to introduce a compulsory phonics screening check for all pupils at the age of six as a way of measuring progress and enabling early identification of those at risk of falling behind. Capita’s National Primary Phonics Conference provides a vital insight into the Government’s literacy agenda, ensuring that you are up to date with the latest developments and ready to implement the phonics screening check from June 2012.
This timely conference will help delegates to consider the wider implications of a phonics screening check and take advantage of the opportunities presented by the matched funding scheme. Attend this event to ensure that you are ready to embed systematic synthetic phonics into your literacy curriculum, optimising levels of reading and raising standards of achievement for every pupil in your school.
