Study Support Residential - Aim Higher (SSOSHL)

Children Looked After frequently perform poorly at school
compared to the general population. Children Looked After often have problems in accessing Study Support because they have been relocated away from their communities and have much longer travel times to get to school.

Hertfordshire Schemes of Work

Over the last four years, a lot of time has been spent by English teachers, in collaboration with the Hertfordshire English Team, reviewing and improving schemes of work. The aim has been to ensure the schemes provide a range of teaching and learning activities which focus upon the development of skills and that the schemes are accompanied by high quality resources.

There is a collection of many schemes of work and resources that have been produced by English teachers in the county in conjunction with the Hertfordshire English Team. This method of working also ensures a quality control on the materials published here. We encourage you to make use of these schemes and resources in order to prevent teachers across the county re-inventing the wheel, however, we would expect some adaptations to be necessary to make them work for you in your setting.

We would like to thank all the schools who have contributed their work to these pages and ask that if you do use any of these schemes, that credit is given to the school and English Team.

If you have a scheme and resources you would like to contribute, please contact Liz Shapland
