About our network

I have found the website and resources incredibly useful, both at a practical and research level. They have helped me establish literacy across the curriculum in my school.
Anne-Marie Anderson, Senior Manager, The Angmering School, West Sussex

The National Literacy Trust Network brings together school and other education professionals from across the UK to help them share their knowledge and experience in improving children's literacy skills. We provide practical support for the classroom and library, exciting CPD opportunities and a forum to learn from other professionals in the network.
