Literacy and numeracy are critical foundations, equipping students to access learning in all other parts of the curriculum.  

We need a clearer understanding of which students need more support and in which areas. We also need to translate and make high-quality evidence accessible for teachers so they can know how to better support students’ literacy and numeracy across the curriculum.  

We're working on a project exploring the most effective practices for teaching the literacy and numeracy skills that children and young people are struggling with the most.
