On 16th September 2021, WE hosted a day of virtual sessions with Alex Quigley on vocabulary development, reading and writing improvements alongside leading literacy across the school. As part of the day, Alex also explained how Words For All approaches can provide crucial support for schools and school leaders to make a real difference.
