Our Vision

The Excellence in Literacy Quality Mark from the  International Literacy Centre at the  Institute of Education, London, aims to help schools improve the quality of literacy provision and literacy outcomes for all children. The self-evaluation framework seeks to be responsive to the character and individuality of schools in different contexts, whilst illustrating aspects of practice which successful schools have in common.
