Every Child Our Future provides vital support to Key Stage 1 children in Jersey. Literacy, numeracy, writing and communication are fundamental skills that most children master with little difficulty. However, some children find it difficult to grasp these essential skills and fall behind the standard expected of their age group. There is a great deal of evidence that shows the negative impact these gaps have on children’s life chances unless they receive help at an early stage.
Every Child Our Future provides essential support to teachers and schools in addressing these literacy changes. The charity received £30,000 from the CI Lottery to help fund vital full-time employee positions.
