Launchpad for Literacy has had a dramatic impact on our practice as a school! As committed early years practitioners we love it. It has changed the way that we approach planning for language and communication not only in nursery, but into reception and year 1. The essence of the approach fits hand in hand with our philosophy as a school in regards to preparing children to succeed, by giving them a secure basis in language and understanding. The impact of Launchpad for Literacy is evident across school in the children's confidence in reading and competence in their use and understanding of oral and written language.
