RPS identified as a one of the 32 national DfE English hubs

Roade Primary School is very proud to announce that we have been selected by the Department of Education as one of only 32 English Hubs across the country identified due to our high standards of phonics and early literacy. In announcement made by Education Secretary Damian Hinds yesterday-a new initiative has been launched where schools will take the lead in suporting the development of reading, phonics no early literacy across regionalised areas. The hubs are to act as lead schools and support the work and practice in other settings. As you will see from the attached email from the DfE we are the only school in Northants to be identified as an English Hub. Exciting times for our school and a real pat on the back for the hard work of the staff and pupils at Roade. We look forward to the next steps!
