This report presents findings from the qualitative and quantitative evaluation of the Oxfordshire Gaining Momentum (OGM) project, with a focus on attitudinal and behavioural outcomes for literacy leaders, teachers and students.

Based on pre and post surveys in six schools, and attainment data provided by the schools, the evaluation found positive teacher and whole school outcomes and emerging positive student outcomes.

At the end of the programme, more teachers were familiar with evidence-based approaches and had strategies and approaches to literacy that they felt worked well. Their confidence in teaching literacy increased over the course of the programme and schools’ literacy efforts were more focused, targeted and coordinated.

In addition, pupils read more frequently outside class, and attitudes towards reading and writing became more positive.
