Whatever It Takes

...to get every child in Leicester reading!

Whatever it Takes (WiT) is the Leicester City School’s initiative to get every child in Leicester reading. The initiative is a collaborative approach to tackling low literacy levels across the city and is dedicated to ensuring that, as a city, we are reading for pleasure.

Help schools provide effective, targeted work for some of their more vulnerable learners.

Provide inspiration and contribute to helping build a positive reading culture.

Provide better value through the economies of scale when schools work together.

Training & CPD

A range of training opportunities and networks linked to reading for school staff.

Resources

Resources to support the teaching of reading and developing a postive reading culture in school.
