Improving Numeracy and Literacy: Evaluation Report and Executive Summary - June 2015
Published in June 2015, the Improving Numeracy and Literacy project aimed to improve the numeracy and literacy abilities of pupils in Year 2 through the Mathematics and Reasoning programme and the Literacy and Morphemes programme. Both interventions were designed to last for 10 to 12 weeks with children receiving one hour of instruction per week as one of their normal literacy or numeracy lessons. The project involved 55 schools; 17 were allocated to the numeracy group, 19 to the literacy group and 19 to the control group.
This report provided by the Education Endowment Foundation (EEF), evaluates the impact of the two programmes and assesses how well the interventions may be rolled out to a wider group of schools.
