Kernow English Hub

Following the announcement from the DfE in December 2017, a network of English Hubs have been funded as part of the DfE's Social Mobility Action Plan, with a specific focus on improving early language and literacy teaching.

The Kernow English Hub officially launched in January 2019. It is our mission to ensure that every child becomes a reader through supporting the teaching of early language and phonics and fostering a love of reading in all schools. The Kernow English Hub based at Trenance Learning Academy and is one of 32 schools across England appointed by the DfE to take a leading role in supporting schools in the teaching of early reading, closing the word gap and promoting a love of reading.
