About English Hubs
In October 2018, the government announced the names of 32 schools across England designated as national English Hubs. They will take a leading role in supporting schools in the teaching of early reading and phonics.
As defined by the DfE, each English Hub will:
‘…promote a love of reading and support schools across the country to provide excellent phonics and early language teaching. Literacy specialists within each hub will provide tailored support to schools. This will include running events to showcase excellent practice in teaching reading and working with local schools to develop their practice’.
