We are committed to raising literacy standards for all primary aged children, including the lowest achieving. In literacy, effective early intervention is the key for many pupils and that is why the Early Literacy Support programme is being introduced in all primary schools from this September. The programme has been trialled extensively in schools in 50 LEAs and has been well received. We do not intend to withdraw it.
