On 4 March I announced that the Scottish Executive would establish a new literacy project that will focus on programmes and practice to develop literacy in P6-S2 classrooms.

We will also continue the work set out in the National Statement for Literacy, published on 18 June 2002, which provides support for education authorities, schools and teachers to raise standards of literacy.
