The Results Are In. Record Levels of Progress

The reading and writing levels are now in for all the schools that took part in the third year of the Bradford Media Literacy Project. The teachers and children achieved an average points score of 4.7  in writing and 4.28 for reading. These are the best levels we have ever had and also give us an average points score over the three years of the project of 4.28 in writing and 4.15 in reading. The expected progress over a school year is three points.

This provides firm evidence that the use of film can have a powerful impact upon reading and writing levels in primary school. We have also amassed over twenty five case studies detailing the impact the project has had in individual schools. These are on our case studies page.

Our project continues next year and details to sign up can be found here. The project is open to schools in Bradford and beyond.
