How embedding authors in schools can dramatically improve the literacy of SEN students


Pop Up Projects’ Franziska Liebig and children’s author Sita Brahmachari will talk about working with Bradfields SEND Academy in Rochester over three years, demonstrating how Pop Up Festival’s model of bringing live literature experiences to schools has contributed to the transformation of its SEN students’ attainment in English. They will provide anecdotal insights about improved confidence, well-being, and behaviours of students, as well as quantitative research findings on attainment levels and teaching practice. Sita will show the unique creative approach behind her work with Bradfields students.
