Why The Literacy Company?

We have worked with The Literacy Company for 10 years and found them to be proactive in all literacy training.

We work in a deprived area where the need to improve literacy is paramount. By sharing costs with cluster schools, we can ease the financial burden and enhance cross school moderation.

The Impact:

Staff love the training and as a result of fully implementing The Literacy Company’s training, we have achieved record results in literacy.

Our KS SATs results for last year were 85% ARE with 59% GD. I have no doubt this is due to the CPD staff have had over the past ten years.

The Literacy Company have assisted in our writing of the curriculum to ensure it is progressive and of high quality, using interesting texts.

What would you say to other Clusters?

Cluster training is an easy way to set up training at a relatively cheap cost for all staff members.

Due to our constant CPD, staff are now confident in teaching literacy across the school, and this can be seen from attainment results and progression.
