Information for Head Teachers
Improving Results With Mighty Writer
Head teachers face a number of challenges; from raising standards and Ofsted results, running schools within increasingly tight budgets, implementing school improvement plans, through to managing the expectations of governors, LEAs and parents. In addition to this head teachers must encourage their teachers to maintain standards of teaching and evolve best practices to address pupils' needs.
Mighty Writer was created by Emma Ralph, an assistant head teacher who understands the challenges that schools and head teachers face. The resource looks to overcome issues such as:
the range of abilities and specific needs of children
the range of abilities and approaches of teaching staff
identifying and addressing areas for improvement and delivering tangible results
current mountains of paperwork
Mighty Writer allows your teachers to employ the techniques they already use in a simple and comprehensive manner, encouraging children to master the skills of speaking, story planning and writing without having to completely overhaul current approaches.
Mighty Writer can be incorporated into existing lesson planning to help reduce work loads and avoid learning a new methodology of teaching. Teachers have everything they need in one place and can maintain their current teaching of writing, employing strategies they already use. There is currently nothing else on the market similar in nature to this, which makes Mighty Writer a unique and innovative new teaching resource that you will want to embed in your school.
