A series of four full-day INSET sessions delivered by creative literacy experts the Centre for Literacy in Primary Education

Each INSET offers a stand-alone day of CPD designed to support participants to explore and develop creative teaching approaches to a range of priorities around reader development: reading for pleasure, planning creatively around texts, poetry, and using picture books.

The programme is designed so that each INSET provides a comprehensive exploration of its topic and does not require participants to have attended any other sessions.

Centre for Literacy in Primary Education (CLPE)

The CLPE is a UK-based charity. We support schools to teach literacy creatively and effectively, enabling children to read and write for purpose and for pleasure. We provide professional development and resources and conduct research into all areas of literacy, using findings to inform practice and contribute to national and international perspectives.


Access & Inclusion

These Masterclasses will take an inclusive approach and are suitable for teachers working in primary mainstream and SEND settings. An access budget is available to support participant engagement in this programme, for example for transport, BSL interpretation or other costs.


Primary Arts Masterclasses are aimed at qualified teachers working at any level in state primary mainstream and special schools in London. The programme is designed to support teachers working with pupils in all primary year groups from Reception to Year 6.

If your school or a member of your school staff is participating in another area of the Primary Arts programme, you are still eligible to take part in this strand of the programme. Places will be limited to two participants per school.
