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.

Support the training and development of staff in schools who lead, teach and support reading.

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.
