The Wensum English Hub
Arden Grove Infant & Nursery School runs in partnership with Heather Avenue Infant School to host one of 34 English Hubs nationwide. Funded by the Department for Education, we support other schools in the county to achieve excellence in teaching reading and early language development
The Wensum English Hub is based at Heather Avenue Infant School, which like Arden Grove Infant & Nursery School, has been rated by Ofsted as 'Outstanding' and both schools are located within The Wensum Trust's City Hub, in Hellesdon.
We are passionate about reading and about teaching all children to read fluently and for enjoyment. We have considerable expertise in providing high-quality CPD, funding and bespoke support to drive school improvement.
Information for Other Schools
Attend a half-day showcase to find out how your school can benefit from the Wensum English Hub. You will be able to observe phonics lessons, find out how we have developed a reading-for-pleasure culture and how to apply for funding and free bespoke support.
Bespoke School Support
Receive school-specific support from our expert team. Specialists will be able to work directly with your school, supporting with writing an action plan, leading INSETs and developing teaching.
Apply for funding to improve early language and literacy teaching at your school. We are able to provide primary schools with match funding of up to £3,000. If your school meets specific eligibility criteria, you could be offered up to £6,000 outright funding.
