Welcome to the Every Child Should newsletter #2
Thank you for your positive feedback on edition 1 – the newsletter is now in its regular weekly Tuesday slot.
This week literature, literacy and cultural inclusion are high on our agenda.
In a week when The Silent Child scooped an Oscar it is timely to be focusing on the inclusion of children and young people in arts and culture. We are delighted to be supporting the Cultural Inclusion Manifesto and our latest blog on the importance of arts, museums and cultural education for all children and young people explains why we thinks this so important.
This from Nancy Gedge following from last week’s World Book Day is an important piece on the representation of people with learning difficulties in literature and the book list within is a valuable resource for all schools.
Oracy is a key component of literacy and we are delighted to be speaking at Voice 21 Oracy Leaders Programme this week – for applications to this year’s programme and for free resources on ensuring effective oracy skills register with Voice 21.
Every Child Should is a campaign to ensure that a broad and balanced curriculum is an entitlement for all, with a particular focus on ensuring access for the 500,000 children in the UK likely to need it the most.
