This forum for subject leaders will provide information about national and local priorities, including the latest developments in primary English; advice and guidance to support the strategic leadership of English and opportunities to share best practice amongst schools. Delegates shape the agenda and sessions are tailored accordingly, allowing subject leaders the opportunity to work together on joint priorities and produce materials to use across schools. Last year, teaching sequences and a grammar progression were created through the forum.

Feedback from these sessions consistently reflects that subject leaders find it an invaluable source of information and support. With the pace of change nationally, alongside developments in school, these meetings provide guidance and resources to ensure that subject leaders are up-to-date.
