“English hub schools will promote a love of reading and support schools across the country to provide excellent phonics and early language teaching.”- DfE, 2018
The DfE has appointed 34 English Hub schools to take a leading role in supporting schools to improve the teaching of early language, reading for pleasure and phonics. The National Literacy Trust offers high quality resources and CPD to support some of these aims.
We have compiled this list of contact details for English Hub schools so you can find your nearest and find out what support is available.
If you are an English Hub school, please contact us to find out how our online membership resources and CPD can support your goals and help you work with schools in your designated area. We have a number of resources designed for literacy leaders, particularly those who will be taking on the role of Literacy Specialist. These include a strategic review tool and guide to policy and practice and our well-respected research.
