Following the extremely successful previous reading day in 2016, we are fortunate to again bring the highly acclaimed James Clements. The focus for this day will be writing across the primary phase.

James works as an independent English adviser, supporting schools and local authorities across the country to develop the teaching of reading, writing and drama. He is the founder of Shakespeare and, a not-for-profit organisation that supports the teaching of English in primary schools. He was consulted on the 2014 National Curriculum for English and is part of the DfE’s English Expert Subject Group.

Previously, James worked for ten years as a senior leader at an outstanding inner-city primary school. He was also a local authority Lead Teacher, leading training and supporting teaching and learning across a network of schools.

The comprehensive day of professional development to consider how we teach writing will look in detail at:

- How we can build a culture of writing in our schools·
- How to create a rich and motivating curriculum for writing
