Phonics Roadshows

We are delighted to be running a series of free Phonics Roadshows on behalf of the Department for Education that will showcase best practice in the teaching of systematic synthetic phonics. The roadshows will take place in host schools across the Midlands, South and East of England.

The training will be delivered by phonics expert, Charlotte Raby from the Children’s Reading Company and Jo Jackson.
