Yesterday at Yeoman Park Academy, we were delighted to welcome visitors from across the Diverse Academies trust to take part in a full day phonics workshop.

Colleagues from secondary, primary and special academies took part in the Ruth Miskin Training based on the Read, Write, Inc phonics programme. They took part in practical workshops and shared their experiences of how this can be used for pupils at a young age and supporting older children who need additional help with their phonics skills.

The training has been designed to enhance the reading and writing provision for all pupils across the trust, and was an enlightening and truly collaborative day for all staff who attended.
