Closing the Gap

Funded by Leicester’s maintained primary schools, Closing the Gap is a programme of projects and initiatives which aim to:

✓ Address city-wide priorities identified by school leaders

✓ Develop and maintain long-term, city-wide activity which contributes to improving pupil outcomes

✓ Ensure de-delegated funding is used effectively, where it is needed most

Closing the Gap is governed by a Steering Group of primary headteachers and representatives from the LA and teaching schools. The group work collaboratively to identify common needs and priorities for the city’s schools and then commission work accordingly.

Closing the Gap is funded by maintained primary schools but academies are able to buy in to most projects or initiatives.

Closing the Gap - English

The English Strand draws on the expertise of city head teachers, practitioners, consultants and key organisations to ensure a joined up approach to improving outcomes in English for children in Leicester.

Projects offered as part of the English Strand respond to the need to close gaps in English but focus this year on the gap in learning following the prolonged school closures. This will be achieved by developing English subject knowledge and subject specific pedagogy.
