Learning outcomes for participants/users and, where relevant, pupils or students

Did you know that 85% of the English spelling system is predictable? The secret to supporting pupils to become confident spellers lies in teaching the strategies, rules and conventions systematically and explicitly, and helping pupils recognise which strategies they can use to improve their own spelling.

This Raising Attainment in Spelling CPD course will introduce you to dozens of approaches, activities and strategies that can be used across the school and are proven to be effective at improving children’s spelling.

By attending this course, you will:

  • Learn how to inspire and engage children to become confident and independent spellers and proofreaders
  • Increase your familiarity with and understanding of the spelling content of the National Curriculum and what progression looks like
  • Discuss ways to ensure children can apply their understanding of spelling to their independent writing
  • Consider how to develop a balanced and consistent approach to the planning and teaching of spelling
  • Look at phonemic, morphological, lexical and etymological games and approaches to the decoding of spelling
  • Learn, develop and share success strategies for spelling common and unusual words
  • Discover how better spelling and word use can have dramatic impact on reading comprehension and creative writing

You'll return to your school with a wealth of exciting ideas, games and approaches to help children become super spellers and accelerate their attainment.

Evidence underpinning this approach

Our training is based on our Path to Success methodology, developed by our Head of Education, David Maytham, which is centered on talk-led, active and collaborative approaches to learning. Our methodology is grounded in the latest primary educational research from influential theorists such as Piaget, Dienes, Vygotsky, Skemp and Bruner. The Path to Success methodology promotes practical, fun and acheivable teaching methods and makes our first-hand experience of current teaching of real children in the primary classroom accessible to all. 

Our methods have been actively used in the classroom and have been found to have a significant effect on the teaching of spelling and children’s progress. We have received outstanding feedback, with 97% of people attending our training rating it as excellent.

How users/participants can evaluate success

The success of our course is immediately evaluated by delegates through an evaluation form, this gives people attending the course the opportunity to rate their experience of the course and the trainer. It also provides an opportunity to comment on highlights of the course and areas that could be improved or changed. Success can also be evaluated following the course. After attendees implement strategies from our course into their current teaching practice back in the classroom, they can compare these experiences with the objectives of the course. 

 You are more than welcome to then provide your feedback of this back to us.
