Working with Schools

We work with schools in the UK and overseas in a number of ways to provide effective and inspiring opportunities for learning to students and teachers. 

High Quality Resources

High quality resources which can be used throughout primary school.

Saving Teacher Time

Our clubs, programmes and training sessions are designed to save teacher time.

By Teachers, For Teachers

Materials are created by experienced teachers with English specialism, including 11+ preparation.

Raise School Funds

Why not use the money earned from the after-school club to help fund the school library?

“Safe hands for your primary school aged child, especially when it comes to 11+ tutoring and KS2 English courses.”

Creative Writing After-School Clubs for Key Stage 2 

As teachers ourselves, we know how limited time there is to plan an after-school club. Our creative writing clubs are created for you, with high quality PowerPoints and supporting resources. No planning is required! Each club is 5 or 10 sessions long and each lesson is designed to take 1 hour. They are ideal clubs to run throughout a school half or full term.

Schools have the flexibility to choose when to run the club, how many children will participate and how much they will charge parents.

After School Creative Writing Clubs

Literacy Intervention Writing Programme 

In November 2021, the Education Endowment Foundation published its report on Improving Literacy in Key Stage 2. One of the seven key recommendations is for schools to ‘Use high quality structured interventions to help pupils who are struggling with their literacy’.

For those children who have been identified as needing further support with writing, we offer a 5 or 10-week intervention programme, which includes all the resources needed to make a significant impact on children’s writing skills.

Staff CPD Training for Literacy and 11+ Preparation 

Our pre-recorded CPD training sessions are created to support teachers, giving them the confidence and skills to teach effectively in the classroom. The training sessions can work perfectly during a staff meeting or INSET day. Our school training sessions are CPD accredited, awarding staff with CPD points. 

Free Online Courses to Children on Free School Meals

In January 2018, the EEF published a report entitled “The Attainment Gap” summarising its key findings relating to academic attainment and economic disadvantage. Their studies showed that the “attainment gap is largest for children and young people eligible for free school meals (the best available measure of economic disadvantage) and those assessed with special educational needs”. To support children who have an economic disadvantage, we work with schools and volunteer tutors to run free online creative writing courses as after-school clubs, which children can access from their home.

Creative Writing Skills Book

Our Creative Writing Skills book can be purchased by schools at a discounted rate, if bought directly through us. This book can be used by 7-14 year olds to improve their writing skills. It is particularly helpful for Key Stage 2 children.

Imagine If: Creative Diary for Children

Our Imagine If: Creative Diary for Children can be purchased by schools and is a great way to encourage writing amongst Key Stage 2 children.

Imagine If
I have been teaching the Bright Light Education courses in creative writing and comprehension for almost three years now. From a teacher’s perspective, the courses could not be easier to teach: all the high quality resources (both PowerPoints and worksheets) are provided, whilst the materials are very user-friendly. Alongside this, the lessons are well-structured and run very systematically, allowing teachers to work their way through the lessons well and with clarity. 
 
In terms of the children, they always have fun and enjoy the lessons. They approach the activities with great enthusiasm and are eager to do their very best. By the end of the course, the children have made progress and have grown in confidence and skill. 
 
The lesson activities are varied, but there is a consistent structure to each lesson, which offers the children a regularity that helps them to feel comfortable and relaxed rather than daunted and overwhelmed.
 
I would definitely recommend the courses!
