English at Kettlethorpe High School

Wave 1 Teaching (Quality First Teaching)

All teachers and support staff at Kettlethorpe High School are trained in different strategies to introduce, develop, support and challenge pupils with improving their reading. Each subject area will exploit a variety of different text types across the fiction and non-fiction spectrum. Research clearly shows that the ‘disciplinary approach’ (where subjects develop specific reading and writing skills required in each subject) is one of the most positively impactful ways of helping pupils improve their reading and writing knowledge and skills.
