South Yorkshire Reading Guarantee

RG2_edited_edited_edited_edited.png

The South Yorkshire Guarantee has been produced in collaboration by partners across Sheffield, Rotherham, Barnsley and Doncaster. It is designed to offer schools the tools to reflect on and review practice, which then result in actions and plans to develop Reading for Pleasure, early reading and phonics.
