Childer Thornton English Hub


Childer Thornton English Hub are proud to be designated as one of The Department for Education’s 34 English Hubs. This is in recognition of our excellent track record in phonics and reading. Our designated geographical areas include Cheshire West and Chester, Wirral, Liverpool, Halton, Warrington, and Shropshire and our aim is to provide support and development to schools across our area by improving the teaching of early language and reading. We offer training and development to schools within our region through a collaborative approach to achieve better results for children.

Any school can engage with an English Hub and most begin by attending one of our Showcase events. Participants are able to hear our passionate team share best practice in the teaching of phonics, early language development as well as sharing their love of reading.

Depending upon criteria set out by the DfE, we may then visit schools to carry out an audit, where we will make recommendations about how to improve phonics at the school. We are also able to offer substantial grants to fund improvements in phonics provision for eligible schools.
