About this course

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.
