  • Allowing you to monitor and track the development of reading progress over time
  • Supporting communication with parents, pupils, teachers and senior school leaders
  • Identifying the literacy barriers to effective learning across the curriculum
  • Pinpointing your gifted and talented and underachievers in English curriculum performance
  • Using nationally referenced literacy based and English curriculum data

What others say about our workshops:

“We firmly believe that reading is the key to everything. Reading and comprehension are the gateways to learning but they can also be the barriers. This is why the NGRT is particularly good as it identifies the discrepancies one way or another.”
Jill Wilson, CBE, Headmistress, The Gleddings

“Best practice suggests that a balance of strategies is the way to ensure children have good Literacy skills, but it can be difficult to measure how wide a child’s vocabulary is or how advanced their inference and deduction skills are. NGRT gave us a way in.”
Christine Saville, Deputy Head, Castlechurch Primary School
