Sharing best practices in reading

Thursday 11 June 2015 at East Point Academy, Lowestoft

You are invited to a one-day conference at East Point Academy aimed at sharing best practices in reading. The event is free to attend, and will provide opportunities to hear from staff and students at East Point, representatives from Renaissance Learning, and senior leaders from other schools in the region.

Schools across the East of England have been hearing about the transformation taking place at East Point Academy. Previously in Special Measures, the academy was upgraded in a recent Ofsted inspection which singled out the progress students are making in literacy as a particular strength.
