Herts for Learning (HfL) has signed a deal with HarperCollins UK, a division of HarperCollins Publishers, to produce seven new primary English publications.
In September, the English Subject Leader Toolkit and the Primary Writing Toolkit, written and developed by Herts for Learning will be published under the Collins imprint and made available to all schools in the UK and internationally.
The English Subject Leader Toolkit will support teachers involved in the effective leadership of Primary English and covers all three primary phases. It enables English leaders to identify and plan curriculum intent, develop strategies for successful implementation and measure and articulate impact.
The Primary Writing Toolkits for Years 1-6 facilitate robust planning, assessment and moderation across the school. Subject leaders and teachers are supported to set clear expectations for primary writing and then monitor and evaluate progress.
HfL operates with a not-for-profit ethos. Beyond maintaining sufficient reserves and financing long-term projects, any surplus made by HfL is invested in the common good and/or the development of specific new services to address key challenges for its shareholding schools.
Commenting on the deal, Alison Penny, Business and Organisational Development Director at HfL said: “This wonderful new partnership with Collins will give HfL brand awareness beyond Hertfordshire, through the endorsement of a highly-respected publishing house.”
Lee Newman, Education Publisher HarperCollins UK, said: “I’ve long been a fan of the work Herts for Learning do in schools, the fantastic team at HfL and the insightful training and resources they offer. As a governor in North Herts I’ve seen first-hand the impact their work has, and I’m delighted to help broaden their reach and amplify their best practice across the sector.”
