FREE sample Annual Literacy Review

Not yet a member of the the National Literacy Trust Network? We've published a free taster section of our Annual Literacy Review 2015/16 (usually only available to Network members), so you can "try before you buy".

Our Annual Literacy Review is a valuable tool that supports literacy leaders to review their school's current literacy provision and develop an action plan for moving forward.

Each section is accompanied by supporting advice, which encompasses signposts to further research, resources and support to help address elements of need and priority.
