Forest supports literacy hour

24th July 1998 at 01:00
THEitem on the literacy hour in primary schools (School Management Update, TES, July 3) shows a degree of scepticism from one head and chair of governor in Waltham Forest. This is not typical.

We are completing our second year of the National Literacy Project. Those schools that have started the literacy hour and have undergone the training have found that any initial reservations give way to very positive outcomes and real increases in achievement.
