Code: OTSA/19/11 An Introduction to: Fundamental Skills

While many children acquire skills naturally as they grow and play, children with learning difficulties often need cognitive skills to be purposefully taught. Without this, developmental gaps result which affects their learning across all curriculum areas, especially Literacy and Maths.

This workshop is designed to support you to meet the needs of children whose abilities do not yet reach Level 1 of the National Curriculum. It will introduce TAs, NQTs, Early Career Teachers and SENDCos to the prerequisite skills that underpin all learning, and how they can explicitly teach and assess the very small pre-Literacy and pre-Numeracy skills that some children need to take in order to make progress.

This is useful to those teaching in special or mainstream education settings, and in Early Years, Primary or Secondary phases.

The session will be led by senior leaders at Bardwell school, a Special School for children aged 2 - 19 in Bicester. It will be interactive, and will give participants practical guidance on using assessment to maximise the potential of all of the children with whom they work.

£50 + VAT per person, or £25 +VAT for NQTs
