In the first podcast of the academic school year we discuss effective literacy teaching and find out what the evidence really tells us about this crucial topic. Sir Kevan Collins and Tom Martell from the Education Endowment Foundation discusses the reports’ evidence and practical recommendations for the teaching of literacy in primary schools. Kate Atkins, Head at Rosendale Primary school talks about her experience on how an evidence-based approach has been used within school.
We also get a funding update from Head of Policy, Valentine Mulholland who outlines our campaigning work for school funding ahead of the Autumn Budget.
