Presenters from across the education spectrum discuss how they use assessment to support reading

The Festival of Reading brought together a wide range of voices to share how they will be using assessment to support reading in a post-lockdown world.

These recordings give first-hand accounts of how schools and school groups have supported learners over the last year, what they’ve discovered during the process, and the strategies they are implementing both on the immediate return to school and as they look ahead to the next academic year and beyond.

Covering areas such as rolling out impactful literacy strategies, the importance of reading to the wider school curriculum, and effective ways to support specific groups of children (such as EAL and SEND).
