National Literacy Trust to receive Government grant for literacy improvement tool

25 Mar 2015

The Department for Education has announced the projects that have been chosen to receive voluntary and community sector (VCS) grants, worth £25 million. The successful bids were selected for the life-changing impact they will have on children, young people and their families. The National Literacy Trust is delighted to be one of the organisations to receive funding.

We have been granted £355,463 to develop an improvement tool for private, voluntary, independent (PVI) and school settings that focuses on language and attachment for the under 3s. The tool will help to drive up the quality and choice of the early education offer in disadvantaged areas, and will also engage parents, helping them develop a stronger home learning environment, including the use of digital technology (e.g. phones and tablets).

Between April 2015 and March 2016, we will work with two local authorities and five nursery teaching schools across England who will work with a selection of PVI and school settings in their areas. Sign up to our newsletter for updates in the coming months.
