Improving the home learning environment

Teachers, Teaching Assistants, Headteachers
Chat, Play and Read Campaign with the National Literacy Trust

The Department for Education's 'Chat, Play, Read' Campaign was announced last week, https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/improving-the-home-learning-environment

This guidance is for:

  • early years settings and experts
  • voluntary and community sector organisations
  • businesses

This behaviour change model sets out an approach that all organisations can use to inform their activities, to ensure that the advice given to families is consistent and based on evidence.

It combines the latest evidence on the home learning environment (HLE) from the experiences of those working with families, to help promote early language and literacy development.
