Structured Literacy

Across School Leader

Kia ora tātou, 

I am the new Across School Leader focusing on Structured Literacy, in a new position allocated to Kāhui Ako ki Orewa due to roll growth. 

My name is Madeleine Lockie and I lead the year 3 team, and teach a year 3 class at Orewa Beach School. 

I have previously worked with the Kāhui Ako ki Orewa as a within school leader on the, then, writing focus team. 

Literacy is a passion of mine and I am particularly excited about Structured Literacy! I am looking forward to working with all our kura’s to further all of our journeys in this area.

I aim to find the expertise and facilitate our schools to work together to share, learn and grow maximising our strength collectively.

Structured Literacy stems from the Science of Reading which is a vast, interdisciplinary body of scientifically-based research about reading and issues related to reading and writing. We are so fortunate to have the opportunity to utilise this knowledge in our schools to maximise outcomes for our akonga, especially those that struggle with literacy. 

Structured Literacy is a huge shift in education both here in New Zealand and globally and presents challenges for teachers and schools as we make pedagogical shifts. I aim to support and find solutions as well as seek opportunities to meet these challenges head on.

I look forward to working with many of you harnessing your collective knowledge to move all of our schools, teachers and students forward.
