CLPE training has had a transformational effect on the engagement of our children in reading and writing.
The CLPE Reading and Writing Scales could transform English pedagogy & assessment. An excellent free resource.

The Power of Pictures provides great classroom activities. We are thrilled with the development of our children’s writing.
The project has had a huge impact in the EYFS through use of the books and teaching sequences. It has been instrumental in giving more confidence and inspiration to our teachers.
