  1. Making it REAL Raising Early Achievement in Literacy in Jersey

    Report Card No. 2
  2. Engaging parents in their children's early literacy development has been

    shown to improve children's outcomes and help to narrow the gap between less advantaged and other children. NCB’s Making it REAL programme enables practitioners to reach out to parents and families, building confidence and knowledge to support early home learning, with a powerful impact on children’s outcomes and on family literacy practice. All nurseries and pre-schools in Jersey have been offered the opportunity to take part in an island-wide programme which includes a focus on literacy and maths. This report card reports only on the REAL literacy project and presents data for two school years 2016/17 and 2017/18. 1. About the programme Making it REAL
