Annual Literacy Survey for Bradford

As attitudes to literacy have a profound effect on the motivation, attitude and academic performance of young people, we would like to invite your school to take part in an online survey for eight to 18-year-olds designed to explore children and young people’s attitudes towards reading and writing.

Annual Literacy Survey

The survey also gathers the young people's views on speaking and listening. The National Literacy Trust, the charity behind the Bradford Literacy Campaign, is offering the survey for the second year as we aim to  build up a long-term picture of literacy in the area from the perspective of  children and young people from a variety of socio-economic and ethnic backgrounds.

Your school will receive a report outlining the key findings from your pupils. These reports are regularly used by schools to inform their literacy strategy in school, as supporting evidence for OFSTED or to review current literacy provision. The more young people who complete the survey the more complete the picture we can provide. As a minimum we recommend that a year group, or random sample from each year group complete the survey, but the most useful report will be generated if the entire student body can participate. The online survey takes around 20 minutes to complete and can be set as homework or, if possible, run during a lesson.
