Book a Showcase

Here at the Lacey Green English Hub, we will be hosting a series of Phonics and Early Reading Showcase Events to demonstrate best practice in the teaching of systematic synthetic phonics and reading, whilst discussing the importance of early language development and promoting a love for reading. This event is a fantastic opportunity to find out more about the support and possible funding available from the English Hub.


Throughout 2020- 2021, we welcomed over 120 schools to our showcase events and supported headteachers and phonics leaders to improve the phonics and early reading provision in their school, to ensure that EVERY child learns to read regardless of their background, needs to ability.
