Join us for an introduction to the new EEF Guidance Report ‘Preparing for Literacy’

The session will involve an introduction to the report and its implications for practitioners and school leaders alike. It will offer time and space to reflect and in turn network with other practitioners from across our region. Tea, coffee and snacks will be provided.

FREE Copies of the Guidance Report for all delegates


The document is part of a series of reports that the EEF is producing on the theme of literacy. It focuses on the teaching of communication, language and literacy to children between the ages of three and five. However, it may also be applicable to older pupils who have fallen behind their peers, or younger pupils who are making rapid progress. Two earlier reports cover the typical requirements of teaching literacy in Key Stage 1 (ages 5–7) and Key Stage 2 (ages 7–11).

The recommendations represent ‘lever points’ where there is useful evidence about communication, language and literacy teaching that schools can use to make a significant difference to children’s learning. The report focuses on pedagogy and approaches that are supported by good evidence.


Who is this guidance for?
This guidance is aimed primarily at literacy co-ordinators, headteachers, and other staff with leadership responsibility in early years settings. Senior leaders have responsibility for managing change across a setting so attempts to implement these recommendations are more likely to be successful if they are involved. Early years practitioners will also find this guidance useful as a resource to aid their day-to-day teaching.

It may also be used by:

– governors and parents to support and challenge staff;
– programme developers to create more effective interventions and teacher training; and
– educational researchers to conduct further testing of the recommendations in this guidance, and fill in any gaps in the evidence.
