Supporting Development

Pathways Literacy products are programmes for schools to support whole-school development of English. Unlike many other schemes, Pathways Literacy resources are designed to be flexible to fit around your existing curriculum while ensuring a progressive approach to teaching English.

Every programme has undergone meticulous research to guarantee alignment with national curriculum standards and Education Endowment Foundation findings. As a result, the lessons and provided planning effectively meet the objectives set. These thoroughly designed lessons serve as a blueprint for empowering your teachers with the confidence to teach English and keeping pupils engaged in English throughout their school journey.

Developing Cultural Capital

Pathways to Write and Pathways to Read, have been developed to inspire pupils through the texts that are shared with them. The texts chosen cover a wide range of curriculum themes as well as creating windows (for pupils to see the wider world) and mirrors (for pupils to see themselves). Texts and units are updated regularly with themes to reflect what is happening in the world, such as looking at the effect plastic has on our natural world or celebrating the opening of Shakespeare North Playhouse.

Choose the Pathway that is right for you

Our Pathways Literacy programmes can all be used independently of each other but are linked by themes and the Pathways methodology, making them ideal for a whole-school mastery approach to literacy.
