This varies, according to the text and the size of the class. In a ideal world it be wonderful for every child to hold a copy each, but many schools purchase one between two (this is probably the minimum access level if it is a novel with small print) and if it is a picture book sometimes there is just one copy for the teacher and a group set to use and refer to during shared or guided sessions.

We can provide a list of recommended suppliers to any school that subscribes, though many independent bookshops will offer a discount on large orders and we would always advocate building a relationship with your local bookshop.

We recommend the email which is used as the username is a generic one, such as subscriber@ or login@ or office@ rather than a personal email. We would only let the user change this if they were the person taking out the subscription. The password can be retrieved using this login.

The plans are written for a generic class and occasionally offer differentiation tips according to support and challenge but do not break these down into differentiated activities. The sequences should always be adapted to meet the needs of a particular class.

Unfortunately we only offer the PDF download version, but there are many piece of software which can convert these for you if you wanted to adapt the plans significantly.

No, although we would recommend someone from the school attends training or that an INSET is booked if a school are adopting the Literacy Curriculum approach in full.  Any CPD we run supports the pedagogy behind the planning approach and we always share outcomes and demonstrate many of the practical activities advocated in the planning. Please see our training page for details of courses and texts covered.

Whilst we try very hard to ensure that the books we use are in print and readily available, from time to time books will finish print runs and bookshops may not stock them. We would always recommend talking to your local independent bookshop owner to find out current availability. Sometimes third party-sellers through online bookshops may be able to get hold of new or second-hand copies of texts.

The subscription entitles you to access to all the online resources for the suggested books, but does not include physical copies of the books. We recommend approaching your local independent bookseller to source texts.
