Virtual INSET Day - Developing a Reading for Pleasure School

This INSET day will support teachers and leaders to plan for increased engagement and attainment in reading across their setting.


What participants will gain

We will also focus on how to create and manage reading areas and school libraries to make this stock accessible; developing children’s self-selection and independence in reading and fostering a love of reading in the school community.

Over the course of the day we will also explore creative teaching approaches designed to target specific reading skills and increase children’s motivation to read with a greater depth of understanding, leading to increased engagement and attainment across your school.

The whole staff group will have the opportunity to reflect on the importance of providing a range and breadth of quality children’s literature in developing engaged and motivated readers across the school.

The staff team will over the course of the day have time to consider:

  • What do we mean by Reading for Pleasure?
  • Why is this an important experience for all children?
  • How to choose and use texts for different reading experiences, designed to promote reading for pleasure.
  • How to develop and maintain reading areas, including a school library.

Schools wishing to partake in Virtual INSET days or staff meetings will have the option to select a day focused on this area for a fixed fee of £800. To book, please complete our Booking Enquiry Form.
