Showcase Events

In response to Covid-19 restrictions and the demographic we cover, we have created a new Showcase model:


Our free, remote, Showcase Events offer an opportunity to share best practice in phonics teaching. 


Online Showcase Event - this session will be in two parts:

Session 1 (attendance for session 1 is compulsory)

As part of the online session, you will have the opportunity to:


  • listen to speakers, including English Hub Lead, and Strategic Lead
  • receive input in relation to development of phonics, early language & reading for pleasure
  • consider school implications, implementation and impact, as well as provide opportunities for school leaders to find out more about the support offered through the English Hub
  • explore the DfE approved SSP programmes


Session 2

As part of the online session, you will have the opportunity to:


  • see high quality phonics lessons online



In School Open Morning


As part of the open morning, you will have the opportunity to:


  • spend a follow up morning with Orgill English Hub, observing high quality phonics lessons and reading for pleasure culture
  • explore physical resources from a variety of approved SSP programmes
  • reflect upon schools' own practice and development


It is compulsory that you attend Session 1 of the Online Showcase Event. You can then choose to attend Session 2 and see teaching online or attend the in school open morning.



Once you have attended a Showcase Event, you will be asked to complete a Showcase Response form which is your opportunity to reflect on what you have seen and heard and make a request for further support from the Hub.  We will use the information given on these forms to prioritise schools for intensive support and funding.


Headteacher attendance at these events is compulsory if you wish to be considered for funding or support.  The events are also open to senior leaders and reading leaders.  There is a maximum of two attendees per school.


Supply cover up to the value of £150 per attendee can be paid if your school meets two of the following criteria:


  • Lower than average percentage of pupils meeting the expected standard in the Phonics Screening Check.  82% in 2019.
  • A higher than average proportion of pupils reading below age-related expectations.
  • A higher than average proportion of children eligible for pupil premium.  In 2018/19 the national average was 22.9%.
  • Ofsted judgement of Requires Improvement or Inadequate.
  • A high proportion of groups considered hard to reach such as EAL, FSM, travellers etc.
  • Schools referred by local partners such as LAs, NLEs and RSCs.
