Here is a review via the 'Ripe-tomato.org' blog:

“Success for All” literacy programmes

JULY 15, 2017

The Education Endowment Foundation trial results were negative

Is the Foundation spinning it as positive?


Success for All is a commercial education programme (click here) which claims to improve literacy in primary schools. Teachers are shown how to provide effective phonics teaching and provided with structured lesson plans. Heads and managers get help with ability grouping and with encouraging parental involvement.

Sounds good, but does it really make a worthwhile difference? The Education Endowment Foundation (EEF) has just published a randomised trial testing the programme’s effectiveness.

Ripe-tomato.org loves randomised trials of educational innovations, but criticised an earlier Foundation trial (click here), for playing down its predefined primary and secondary endpoints, which had shown no benefit, and claiming that the treatment had worked on the basis of new, possibly data driven, endpoints. Let’s look at the Success for All trial (click here for the full report or Success_for_All_Evaluation_Report).
