The WriteKey can do all of this, and more.

“This is a course you simply cannot afford to miss - your staff will love you forever for booking it! I have booked Steve (CEO of Dragonfly) to deliver this now in my last 3 schools as Head. On each occasion, staff have been "buzzing" following the training and keen to implement the strategies in their classrooms the very next day. This week, staff are still talking about the new learning 4 days after the training - and excitedly sharing with me the amazing pupil work that has been produced as a result. WOW. Even the most disengaged boys are enthused to write! Steve also shared a fabulous spelling strategy with us. As is the norm for Dragonfly, training was highly entertaining, strategies insightfully researched as highly effective and common sense.”Headteacher , Chivenor Primary School
