Once a school has been trained, our experienced trainers return to work with your leadership team.

The trainer shows the Reading Leader how to coach reading teachers in lessons, run weekly practice sessions using our Portal films, and train tutors to help all children make speedy progress.

Choose the focus for your Development day:

In-school support

A consultant trainer visits during a normal school day to support the leadership team, staff and children. New schools find that one Development Day per term helps get them off to a secure start. We work more regularly with schools needing intensive support.

To talk to us about booking a Development Day for your school, call 01275 331 230 or email us at admin@ruthmiskin.com.

Frequently asked questions

Does the school have to be closed on a Development Day?

No, the school is open as usual and Read Write Inc. lessons take place. The Reading Leader needs to be released from class for the day to work alongside the trainer. The Headteacher should be available at the beginning and end of the day too.

We have just had a Development Day and we don’t have access to the Portal?

Schools gain access to our online portal after a Phonics or Fresh Start Development Day. If you have issues logging in, please get in touch with the team on admin@ruthmiskin.com or 01275 331230.

How many Development Days should we book?

Schools find that 1 Development Day per term helps get them off to a secure start, or 1 every half term if they are in challenging circumstances. Once Read Write Inc. programmes are up and running, 1 or 2 a year should be enough.

What is the most cost-effective way of booking Development Days?

A Development Day is £600+VAT.

We offer a Bundle of 6 Days for £3000+VAT (saving £600) or a Mini Bundle of 3 Days for £1500+VAT (saving £300).

 

Please note all 3 days from a Mini Bundle must take place within 1 year of the first day booked.
