Primary Literacy



In this programme, five primary literacy co-coordinators get the chance to grill top literacy HMI Paul Wagstaff about the inspection process, and what it means for literacy teachers.

Issues covered in the discussion include:

  • Preparing for inspection
  • Self-evaluation
  • Maximising impact
  • Going "beyond the literacy hour"
  • Phonics and reading

With literacy consistently under the spotlight, this "interrogation" is a valuable resource for all primary teachers and heads.

This week's panel features literacy co-ordinators Uz Afzal (Fox Primary School, London) Rhiannon Davies (Christ Church Primary School, London) Satnam Jagpal (Wyndcliffe Primary School, Birmingham) and Year 3 teacher Nina Capek, from Firfield Primary School in Derbyshire.
