Develop a thorough understanding of the reading process throughout the primary years and beyond with this in-depth six day course.

They will consider how this vision informs and shapes a balanced, comprehensive and impactful reading programme.

Engage in school-based gap tasks and reflections, culminating in a case study evidencing impact.
