For teacher sub-standard 3c, you need to demonstrate that you consistently demonstrate an understanding of and take responsibility for promoting high standards of literacy, articulacy and the correct use of standard English, whatever your specialist subject

The types of evidence you can use to showcase this are:

  • Speaking & listening of children

  • Modelling of spoken and written English in all lessons regardless of subject

  • SATs results, optional SATs Y3 - Y5

  • Lesson observations – focus on literacy promotion, provision and standards accepted

  • Planning shows development of literacy as well as subject specific

  • Classroom environment shows accurate promotion of literacy key skills and reading

  • Drop-in sessions

  • Planning (target) to include building literacy skills

  • Learning walks

  • Work sampling and marking in (joined) legible script and enabling development of literacy skills, speaking and listening e.g. Talk for Writing

  • Assemblies

  • Articulate written and verbal communication (with parents and children)

Remember that the evidence in isolation isn’t enough, you will need to annotate it to signpost exactly where/how you are meeting the standard.

You can use photographic evidence to support your evidence for this standard. Be sure to anonymise any student work or data by blacking out names or identifying details. You could use witness statements to support some of this evidence signed and dated by your mentor.
