Emerging Literacy – Twilight CPD

CPD for: P1 Teachers, Primary SMT, Support for Learning Teachers, ASNOs, Educational Psychologists and the Quality Improvement Team


Following the release of the Primary One Literacy Assessment and Action Resource (POLAAR) from Education Scotland in August 2014 we have spent this session testing aspects of the resource in Highland Primary Schools using the Improvement Methodology through the Early Years Collaborative (EYC) and Raising Attainment For All (RAFA) agendas. We’re now in the position where we’re able to offer training in using the POLAAR resource to effectively support Emergent Literacy developments in your school.

On the back of our pilot work, teachers, Speech and Language Therapists, Educational Psychologists and Occupational Therapists have been working on a Literacy Developmental Continuum to support the development of early and emerging literacy within the Early Level and across the school. We will be exploring this in draft form during the twilight session, allowing for practitioners to share their thoughts and early evaluations.

Twilights (4pm – 6pm) will take place over the four areas in eight locations in May and June. Please apply through the CPD calendar by searching for Emerging Literacy.

Please share with colleagues in your school.
