Raising Attainment in Literacy for Learners with SEND

Literacy and communication skills will be essential for our learners’ development and wellbeing. We shall be looking at many evidence-led, creative and multi-sensory approaches to teaching in these areas. We want all learners to have access to a full and meaningful curriculum as far as possible and this course will explore how this can be done in our unique circumstances.

  • Develop and evaluate your numeracy curriculum
  • Create a toolbox of inclusive engaging and relevant games and activities
  • Adapt our teaching to meet the needs of all learners

About this INSET

As well as covering the basics, we will be looking at the importance of providing a wide range of reading and stimulus materials, and a wide range of approaches to teaching literacy. 

Throughout the INSET, we will be looking at examples of individual needs and exploring how learners can apply their skills in relevant contexts, as part of their life skills, communication skills and independent development.

Course objectives:

  • Develop confidence in teaching literacy to learners with a range of additional needs 
  • Develop a toolkit of active ideas and games to make literacy exciting
  • Consider the use of poetry and games to develop confidence and vocabulary
  • Understand the hierarchy of, and prerequisites to, learning
  • Ensure learning is accessible, diverse and inclusive
  • Create dynamic, challenging and exciting schemes of work



This course is suitable for those teaching in both mainstream and special schools.
