SAfE Vocabulary Project

This project will focus on the development of children’s vocabulary in order to raise attainment across the whole curriculum.


Working with Shareen Wilkinson (nee Mayers), sessions will include:

  • The latest research on vocabulary and its importance for all children
  • Using reading to support vocabulary development
  • Implicit and explicit vocabulary instruction
  • Adaptive teaching to support children with SEND
  • Etymology and morphology and their roles in supporting spelling
  • Vocabulary and its role in SATs


Delegates would develop understanding of vocabulary teaching, implement strategies within their own schools and evaluate impact. Meeting once a half term over an academic year, delegates would share their findings, engage in discussion and reflect on their own practice. Delegates would lead the project within their own schools to impact on all pupils, with support from their peers and the SAfE team.

Please note the first session will start on the 8th November, the final session is TBC later on in the term.
