South Ayrshire Council drives literacy improvement across 52 schools

ReadingWise has been collaborating with South Ayrshire Council since 2015. Hear first-hand how effective the programmes have been to date.

All 52 schools in South Ayrshire have been using a range of ReadingWise programmes since 2015. The collaboration began further to a presentation in Glasgow where a Learning Support Teacher from a secondary school in Edinburgh presented a very moving account of how ReadingWise helped her acutely struggling learners.

In a series of interviews, Douglas Hutchison, Director of People & Depute Chief Executive, Ian Leishman, Quality Improvement Officer and Fiona Priestnall, Principal Teacher Inclusion (Learning and Teaching), share why ReadingWise is such a valuable learning intervention for the schools in the authority.

"Education is a huge priority for the Council, and it's going to determine the life course of our children and young people to a huge extent… I haven't found anything as good as ReadingWise for literacy." - Douglas Hutchison, Director of People & Depute Chief Executive, South Ayrshire Council
