What schools are saying

More in case studies

Success for All has provided us with a structured, systematic approach that has enabled all teachers to teach reading effectively, including the key skills of decoding and comprehension.”

Headteacher at Badsley Primary School, Rotherham

Our data has shown rapid and sustained progression. Children are proud of their learning and talk about how it has improved without prompting.”

Unity Partnership

Our children enjoy the pace of these lessons and the high levels of engagement. In addition, SFA provide ongoing CPD for staff, meaning that we are constantly improving the quality of teaching and the outcomes of our children.”

Co-Head Teacher at East Wickham Primary Academy

As a result of the work we have done with Success for All, pupils are more able to discuss with understanding the books they have read, the teaching of reading has become focused and explicit and the data shows that more pupils are achieving the expected level for their age compared with a year ago.”

Headteacher at Badsley Primary School, Rotherham

Children themselves demonstrate excellent behaviours for learning, due to the whole school strategy of co-operative learning, including children who had been disengaged previously are now enthusiastic and active participants in their learning.”

Executive Headteacher and Director of Leadership & Development, STEP Academy Trust

About Success for All


Improving reading and literacy outcomes with evidence-based school improvement programmes

Success for All (UK) joined with FFT in September 2021. We believe that success in life is built on a solid foundation of learning. A first critical step is to learn how to read. From our research we know that children who cannot read at the expected standard by the end of Year 2 have a much lower chance of achieving a Grade 4 or above in GCSE English. Our mission is to give all children a solid, full start to literacy and learning to read.

Success for All’s reading and literacy programmes have been used by schools in the UK for 20 years and provide schools with evidence-based literacy programmes which are fully aligned to the National Curriculum and help schools to teach English from Reception to the end of Key Stage 3. Our literacy programmes have been proven to be effective in a wide range of schools, including those schools with a high proportion of disadvantaged children.
