Witham St Hughs is one of 34 English Hubs that were selected for our expertise in teaching reading and to support schools in our surrounding area. Our role is to support schools to develop the Department for Education’s or DfE’s 3 main aims with a particular focus on the lowest 20%.
The Department for Education’s or DfE’s three priority areas:
1. Early language development: providing evidence-based approaches to early language development and closing the word gap in school-based early years settings.
2. Age-appropriate phonics provision: encouraging best practice in systematic synthetic phonics teaching from school-based early years provision to the end of Key Stage One.
3. Promoting a love of reading: encouraging reading for enjoyment.
