COVID-19 support

The Teamwork’s English Hub at The Greetland Academy is here to support you and your school’s professional development, during these unprecedented times. To help you with this, we have pulled together some professional development opportunities, background reading and bite size videos for you to use.

We have organised the sections of focus into the 3 main aims of the English Hubs, these are, promoting a love of reading, supporting schools across the country to provide excellent phonics and supporting early language teaching. Furthermore, we have also included a section on supporting home learning that we hope you find useful.
