Become a Literacy Star
Pupils and adults taking on projects or initiatives to promote reading, writing, speaking or listening skills can earn the status of Literacy Star.
To become a Literacy Star a group of pupils, such as a school council or library monitors, should lead an activity that promotes literacy. The best initiatives will earn every child involved a limited edition Literacy Stars T-shirt and have the chance to be recognised through the annual Kent Literacy Awards.
Adults connected to their school community can also earn the status of Literacy Star by fulfilling simple criteria detailed in the separate adult briefing sheet. This is appropriate for teaching staff, support staff or governors.
Suggested activities for the children’s version of the scheme include: designing a poster to promote literacy, creating a newsletter to promote book week, organising a public speaking competition, or staging a presentation to parents or an assembly to promote the importance of reading at home.
