Helps every type of teacher achieve their goals

LiteracyPlanet’s reputable brand of evidence-based, curriculum-aligned content and cutting-edge digital technology has been proven to be an effective way to develop literacy skills in pupils.

A major research study from PricewaterhouseCoopers (PwC) analysed scores and usage levels of pupils using LiteracyPlanet’s digital programmes from January 2016 to January 2018, meticulously investigating 500 million rows of data to see what is working well.

And the results speak for themselves.

Key findings

PwC has observed a dramatic increase in the number of secondary schools using LiteracyPlanet from 2016 to 2017, with the number of users from Years 7-9 increasing by 133%.

What’s driving this result is how effectively LiteracyPlanet can be used as a remedial measure for secondary school pupils who are falling behind their peers when it comes to comprehension.


The usage of comprehension based subjects has seen a significant spike with pupils in Year 8 and 9 completing exercises below their year level to help catch up with the rest of the class. 67% of Year 8 pupils and 74% of Year 9 pupils were working on LiteracyPlanet exercises beneath their year level, so they wouldn’t get left behind their peers.


What this tells us

This data proves just how versatile LiteracyPlanet is as a learning tool. Earlier years can use LiteracyPlanet as a tool to help build a strong foundation in literacy for students, while older grades can use LiteracyPlanet as a remedial way to catch up to peers.
