We are delighted to announce that we will be running a series of events to officially launch and outline our offer of support for 2019.

About our English Hub

In September 2018, the DfE appointed 32 English Hub schools across England to support other schools to deliver excellent early language and phonics teaching in Reception and Key Stage 1.

We are delighted to announce that the Yorkshire Endeavour English Hub is one of the chosen 32 schools and will be working in Scarborough, Whitby, Ryedale, the East Riding, York and part of Hambleton.

We are now in the process of establishing the hub and we will soon be recruiting schools to receive support and funding for resources.

Any school can request support from the English Hub and the DfE has identified a number of schools that they would like targeted initially. However, if there is more demand than capacity, the hub will select schools to receive support based on the school's capacity to improve, the level of need for support and the level of disadvantage of the children at the school.

The support Yorkshire Endeavour English Hub will provide includes:

  • Two free places, per school, for 85 schools at Open Events (see below). These will be held during the Spring and early Summer terms (more details to follow);
  • A review of action planning following attendance at an Open Event;
  • Potential funding of up to £6,000 per school to invest in resources. This may be fully funded or match funded depending upon the circumstances of the school. Resources must meet certain criteria;
  • A full audit of a school's early language and phonics provision carried out by one of our experienced Literacy Specialists and support with further action planning;
  • Up to six days of school-to-school support led by one of our Literacy Specialists over the period of a year.

Below is a summary of how the English Hub Programme Works:
