Annual Literacy Review

The Annual Literacy Review is a key tool for Network members. It has been designed to help you to evaluate whole-school ethos, philosophy and quality of provision across the three integral elements of literacy: reading, writing and spoken language.

Fully aligned to the national curriculum for England, each section is comprised of a review poster and is linked to a suite of supporting Network resources. The posters give a focus for review, analysis and discussion to encourage reflection and support the development of whole-school policy and action planning. 

There are primary and secondary versions available but you will need to be a Network member to access them. Join the Network.
