This programme, which focuses on one child's experience, shows the impact a strong literacy strategy can have on teaching and learning.
The message that literacy is the foundation of all learning is getting through at Little Ilford School in East Ham. Almost ninety per cent of the children in the school speak English as an additional language and raising standards in reading, writing, talking and listening has been a considerable challenge.
Through its literacy tactics, the school has already witnessed significant improvements in results. As well as focusing on literacy across the curriculum, the school employs several intervention strategies.
Teachers is the second of four programmes exploring literacy at Little Ilford School.
