Elizabeth Nonweiler of the UK Reading Reform Foundation
has provided a list of programmes recommended for literacy intervention, as required, according to the research-informed 'systematic synthetic phonics teaching principles':https://rrf.org.uk/messageforum/viewtop ... f=1&t=6509
The Department for Education has been fully alerted to the worries of the UK Reading Reform Foundation, and others, regarding the 'Promising Projects List' for literacy intervention of the Education Endowment Foundation that does not include the 'DfE validated' systematic synthetic phonics programmes that the DfE itself promotes (and even funds for schools that require additional support in teaching foundational literacy).
It makes no sense whatsoever that the DfE funds the Education Endowment Foundation knowing that the EEF promotes programmes with different teaching principles to those officially promoted in England after a full parliamentary enquiry and the independent review of Sir Jim Rose (2006).
What this does suggest is that what teachers are to believe and practice for their professional knowledge and understanding is still left to chance because of these contradictory messages.
