Haggie & The Children's Literacy Charity
Why we need your help
Haggie Partners and The Children's Literacy Charity have joined forces in support of disadvantaged and underachieving children living in deprived areas who are struggling to develop the literacy skills (reading, writing, speaking and listening) that most of us take for granted and which have resulted in them getting 'left behind' educationally and socially.
In 2016/17, 92% of the children who accessed The Children's Literacy Charity's interventions: had a Special Educational Need (such as dyslexia), were in receipt of Free School Meals, or, spoke English as an additional language (some children were experiencing all three of these learning barriers) as well as being up to 24 months behind age-related literacy levels. By the end of the academic year, these children had made average reading and comprehension age gains of 25 months.
We are delighted to be able to form this collaboration to help some of the most disadvantaged and underachieving children in the country develop the skills and confidence to achieve their true potential giving them the best chance of future success.
