Sharing an example of practice

The Reading for Pleasure area of the site enables you to share an example of practice from your own work. To do so you must have firstly be registered on the site. You are then asked to complete a ‘Share your practice’ form where further information is requested including: the name and address of your setting (school or teacher training provider); the age phase you work with. You are asked to select from provided key words that can be entered into a search engine to help users of the site to find your example. You are given the option of uploading a photograph relating to the work. You are asked to confirm that you have permission from your school or setting to upload your account of practice and that you have followed the ethical guidelines, including for photos. Your account of practice will be moderated by the web site team before it is published on the site. This is to ensure that the material is appropriate and follows our guidelines. When the example is published your name and that of your school will be visible, alongside your suggested 3 key words. You can see examples within the Reading for Pleasure area of the site.

Your content and information remains yours, including your photos and the text you type. You are free to make the information available to others at any time if you want to.

In legal terms, you are granting us a non-exclusive, transferable license to the material, and warranting that permission for this licence has been given by the copyright holder.
