The Wild Literacy Manifesto

Literacy has been caged. Too often it is reduced to things that can be measured and compared with rigid pre-set targets that restrain and strangle, becoming a tick-box exercise, a dry and dull task to show technical skill and knowledge. Literacy becomes about following a narrow, designated path rather than running unrestrained through wild terrain. Wild Literacy is about giving children space to build their confidence and ability in using words; to enable them to find their voice and use it. Literacy should be about setting children free and enabling them to engage with the world around them. Literacy should not be caged or domesticated; it should be untamed, unleashed and wild!
