Work with dads

 We are working closely with groups of dads and male carers who meet in children’s centres to share their experiences of using family services, discuss how their accessibility could be made easier and how they could champion the literacy support available to other fathers. Other sessions focus on how dads can support their children’s literacy development.

Our Stories

Our pilot of a creative writing programme designed to foster a love of poetry in children, especially boys through visits from local role models, music workshops and cultural days in partnership with Bradford Museums & Galleries and Music & Arts Service has resulted in the percentage of Year 6 pupils at the expected level of writing increasing from 46% to 92%, with 36% of pupils are now above the expected level.

Improving writing attitudes

Partnerships with local festivals, events, poetry competitions and campaigns to drive awareness of the importance of literacy skills has inspired Bradford pupils to write. Our research shows that 52.6% of Bradford’s young people aged 8-16 to write daily outside of school in 2015 (Compared to 39.7% regionally and 44.1% nationally).
