Welcome to The Centre for Literacy in Primary Education
The Centre for Literacy in Primary Education is a UK based children's literacy charity working with primary schools. Our work raises the achievement of children's reading and writing by helping schools to teach literacy creatively and effectively, putting quality children’s books at the heart of all learning. We offer courses at our literacy library in central London and also deliver training in various regional locations.
On Thursday 19th September, we held our second information evening at the CLPE.

Children’s writing has developed immensely and progress has accelerated. Our children now love reading and approach writing bursting with ideas and confidence.

Poetryline is a fantastic resource which fills a much needed gap.
The CLPE Reading and Writing Scales could transform English pedagogy & assessment. An excellent free resource.

CLPE training has had a transformational effect on the engagement of our children in reading and writing.
The Power of Pictures provides great classroom activities. We are thrilled with the development of our children’s writing.
