Christ the Redeemer Primary School, Belfast, Northern Ireland
Christ the Redeemer School have been using Renaissance solutions for over a decade. In the midst of a global pandemic with schools across Northern Ireland being forced to partially close their doors to pupils, the school continue to maintain high levels of reading engagement and staff have managed to avoid seeing too big of a drop in learning based on recent assessment data. The school even faced an inspection at the halfway point of the pandemic and were still able to produce an accurate and detailed analysis of their pupils' progress and subsequent teaching strategies to support those who had dropped off in both reading and mathematics.

St Botolphs CE Academy, Wakefield
Over the last three years, our reading scores at the end of Ks1 and Ks2 have improved, but more than that, the confidence and fluency in our children's reading have advanced. Although this cannot be measured, this is something that we see daily. When a child is excited and eager to get a new book from the library, it shows that the ambition I had at the start of this journey has been achieved, and children have fostered that essential love of reading.
