Annual Literacy Toolkit
The Annual Literacy School Review sits alongside our Annual Literacy Research and Policy Guide and our Annual Literacy Pupil Survey. Together this Annual Literacy Toolkit provides a comprehensive suite of materials to support evaluation, reflection and ongoing strategic development of whole-school literacy.
Updated every year, these three essential publications can be built into your annual school-improvement cycle to provide a gateway to good practice that is informed by evidence, in line with policy and inspired by practical ideas.
