Primary conferences


What will you find at the National Literacy Trust primary conferences?

The aim of our primary conferences is to celebrate best practice and explore the issues most significant to primary practitioners through a combination of thought leadership and workshops.

The National Literacy Trust primary conferences provide an opportunity for primary practitioners to network, share best practice and learn. At the National Literacy Trust we work with communities, schools and the home learning environment to improve the literacy levels and life chances of the most disadvantaged children in the UK. In partnership with policy makers, practitioners and academics we will examine how these elements intersect, and explore how they can be maximized to improve primary literacy and close the word gap.
