Our research aims to improve literacy attitudes, habits and skills by informing policy and practice. We use a variety of approaches. Our extensive survey work provides a platform for the views of children, young people, their parents and literacy practitioners. We also conduct literature reviews that provide evidence of effective practices, and evaluate the impact of our own projects.
