  • Developing a broader strategy for literacy that stretches from early years into adulthood
  • Improving the standard of literacy teaching across schools by ensuring every teacher is a ‘teacher of literacy’
  • Encourage schools to develop partnerships with parents/carers/families by providing information about how they can help to develop their child’s literacy skills.
  • Encourage school governing bodies to ensure that all governors in schools are clear of their role and responsibilities for each child in a school in terms of raising standard

This is the first of the progress reports on the literacy recommendation and depending on progress made the Board may wish to ask for a further update in about six months.
