A whole school approach to literacy learning

Wendy Inman

Between 2003 and 2005 Morwell Primary School in Victoria dramatically lifted the reading results of its very disadvantaged children. This success was achieved through a detailed literacy plan, supported by a whole school approach and strong leadership, measures to deal with a demanding school context, and a belief that quality teaching could have significant and positive effects on the students’ achievements regardless of their backgrounds.
