Reading Recovery is an accredited school-based literacy programme for the lowest-achieving 6-year-old-children. It involves 12 to 20 weeks of one-to-one 30 minute daily lessons, with an in-house specialist Reading Recovery Teacher.

Does it work? Yes! Eight out of every ten children who complete the programme catch up with national expectations. Children maintain these gains and achieve level 4, sometimes level 5, by age 11.

We are planning to create three CPD for Qualified Reading Recovery Teachers (Continuing Contact) Groups which will run between September 2022 and July 2023.

Each group will meet for 6 half day sessions throughout the year & further information regarding dates will be emailed to schools at the end of the summer term.


What you will learn

In addition to training new Reading Recovery teachers, Barlow Hall also offers Continuing Contact for existing Reading Recovery Teachers, this includes six professional development sessions and an annual school visit which will maintain your accreditation and licence with the IOE / UCL as a Reading Recovery Teacher.

CPD is focused on observation and analysis of live Reading Recovery lessons and continued support to extend the specialism of Reading Recovery teachers.


Who is it for?

Qualified Reading Recovery Teachers who wish to deepen their skills and knowledge and maintain their accreditation and licence with the Institute of Education.
