Support for schools

“Improving standards of literacy must be a priority for all our schools, as it is instrumental in helping children in every subject.”
Michael Cladingbowl, Ofsted’s Director, Schools

 The National Literacy Trust provides resources and training for schools to develop outstanding literacy leadership. Our new Support for schools guide provides information on how our offerings can help your school embed reading, writing and communication outcomes within the wider curriculum, develop a creative and purposeful teaching and learning environment and maximise the  impact of your Pupil Premium spend.  

Download the guide to find out more about our fantastic FREE resources and competitions, our innovative CPD Outstanding Literacy Leadership training programme and much more.
