 National Literacy Trust membership  
Manchester schools were provided with National Literacy Trust membership in 2015/16, but must purchase membership for this year. Members have access to a huge range of resources to help schools to improve literacy provision, including evaluation tools, lesson plans, case studies and reading lists. This includes:

  • the Annual Literacy Review, which supports literacy leaders to review their school's current literacy provision and develop an action plan for moving forward
  • the Literacy Guide for Schools, which helps interpret the ongoing policy changes and important research in key areas of literacy
