It is a real privilege to work with UKLA members from such diverse areas and I very much hope that our region will be able to work together and learn from each other about best practice in Literacy. I work as Deputy Course Manager of the Primary PGCE at The University of Cambridge and I am passionate about all things surrounding Primary Literacy. I have a particular interest in children’s writing. I joined UKLA because I believe in its ethos. I feel proud to be able to contribute to a supportive community which places children’s learning at its heart and recognises the value of evidence-informed practice. I would love to hear from UKLA members in the region who would like to become more involved in our work – please feel free to get in touch!
