A report on the case studies experiences in attempting to improve literacy levels across all Cardiff schools.

Cardiff Local Authority have recognised the critical need to improve levels of literacy in its student population, particularly in some of its most socio-economically disadvantaged schools. In devising a long-term strategy designed to respond to this challenge it has investigated successful practice within its own schools, in a number of other areas in Wales and across the UK.

The aims of the evaluation were to report on the policy development process and early experience of case study schools and practitioners involved in implementing the strategy, including signs of early impact and suitability as an approach to improve literacy levels across all Cardiff schools.
