English Hub Success

Impact of Support - Current Partner School Success

We currently work with 34 partner schools, supporting them to improve the teaching of early reading and language for all children. We support a number of local authorities across the North West and provide advice, support, training and development to staff in schools across the region.

Currently, we are in our fourth year of supporting schools. During our first year, we hosted Showcase events for potential partner schools' to attend. We then took on 20 schools in our second year (2019/2020) and another 14 in our third and fourth years (2020/2021/2022). We now support 34 schools.


The Partner Schools that we took on in September 2019, have already seen a significant improvement. As you can see from the table above, in under a year, schools have improved from 60 / 70% passing the Phonics Screening Check, to over 90%. Our Partner Schools are committed to meet the three aims of the English Hubs Programme:

  1. To ensure all pupils make speedy progress in phonics and reading
  2. To develop pupils' understanding and use of spoken language 
  3. To develop pupils' love of reading



“We both felt the time and effort that your brilliant team went to, provided an experience that far exceeded our expectations. We both look forward to working with you again soon”.

“I would like to thank all concerned for the day on Friday, because not only was it well-organised and full of useful information, but everyone from Lacey Green was very open to supporting those of us attending the course, readily offering advice and listening to our thoughts. This made the day extremely useful and enjoyable”.

“Thank you for allowing us to attend your showcase on Friday. It was very useful and gave us lots of food for thought!”
