We are delighted to announce the publication of our Impact Report 2021-22. The report summarises the impact that CLPE has had this year on schools and teachers across the country. It gives an up-to-date insight into our key areas of work including training, teaching resource creation and research which is underpinned by our mission to put quality children’s books at the heart of all learning across the UK.

Catherine Ross, Chair of CLPE Trustees introduced the report: 

"We are looking forward to the future of CLPE, as an Arts Council National Portfolio Organisation and as a key player in the literacy teaching landscape. We are pleased to share our impact report with you and proud of the ways in which our research, our resources and our training continue to impact on literacy teaching across the country ensuring that all children benefit from our work"
