In 2016/17, we extended our Butterfly in-school programme to the London borough of Camden as well as continuing our work in Hammersmith and Fulham, north Kensington and north Westminster. We worked in four primary schools and one secondary school. With our Butterfly in-school programme we taught 114 pupils.

Yes there has been a noticeable improvement in the fluency and decoding in most children... the children can read and scan text more effectively for key information and are showing development in their inference.
