The Literacy Hub

Welcome to the Literacy Hub! This online portal is all about supporting young students to master one of their most important education milestones — learning to read.

Find resources that specifically address student needs at this pivotal stage of learning. Teachers can check the progress of each Year 1 child through the voluntary online Phonics Check. An understanding of phonics is foundational to the development of writing, spelling and reading skills and is one integral component within the key elements of literacy.

Over the coming months, teachers will find additional teaching resources that help them to teach these foundational skills with confidence and use the data to refine learning activities for specific students.

Explore free online professional development for literacy leaders, links to case studies, and the growing evidence base around best practice literacy in schools.

Resources for families include a phonics check and a reading awareness check as well as everyday fun activities that embed the pleasure of playing with sounds and words at home.
