OA Primary Writing Network – FREE places for Doncaster Primary Schools!

Join Sarah Cairns, CEO of Empowering Minds, and System Leaders for this professional learning opportunity focussed around the 7-stage writing process, based on the EEF guidance reports 'Improving Literacy at Key Stage 1' and 'Improving Literacy at Key Stage 2'.

The session, which will be delivered by Empowering Minds MAT in partnership with Doncaster Research School, will be a network event but will start with professional development for teachers to understand how the EEF 7-stage writing process can be tailored to specific years. There will be further meetings that will look at standardising and moderating writing in Spring 2. Subject leaders may wish to attend in order to know what strategies are being covered.


There are network sessions available for three groups and will be delivered remotely via Zoom:

Y1/Y2 – Monday 22nd November 2021 1pm-3pm

Y3/Y4 – Tuesday 30th November 2021 1pm-3pm

Y5/Y6 – Tuesday 23rd November 2021 1pm-3pm

This is a fully-funded network available to all Doncaster Primary Schools.
