If you are teaching early reading, for teacher sub-standard 3d, you need to consistently demonstrate a clear understanding of systematic synthetic phonics

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

  • Teaching at dedicated time EYFS/ KS1/ KS2

  • Plans, including Letters & Sounds or other scheme and guided reading show accurate, regular and prompt planning of groups, interventions and regular assessment

  • Good use of TA’s who have good knowledge effectively displayed

  • Hearing children read, picking up errors

  • Teacher pronounces appropriate phonemes

  • Literacy leader monitoring

  • Outcomes of formal assessment

  • Lesson observations

  • CPD

  • Phonics plans and rich classroom environment

  • Work scrutiny

  • Analysis of data

  • KS2 – 4 teachers with children with SEN in reading are aware of next steps and proactive in promoting reading and supporting phonic development

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 or a copy of CPD notes signed and dated by your mentor.
