Support for English Hubs

Work with us

At Pearson, we are committed to working in partnership with every English Hub and your partner schools to ensure all children are given the opportunity to develop a lifelong love of reading and writing.

Every Hub is supported by our National Primary Literacy Advisor and our dedicated Partnership Team. Local to you, they are working every day with schools and multi-academy trusts to ensure they are getting the most out of their Pearson resources.

Why choose Bug Club Phonics?

Revalidated in 2021 as one of the DfE's approved SSP programmes, Bug Club Phonics is centred around an accessible and inclusive teaching approach. The Essential package includes lessons, lesson plans and allocatable games in addition to 180 fully decodable readers with fiction and non-fiction titles matching the GPCs.

Primary Literacy Reading Pathways

In addition to Bug Club Phonics, we have three other reading pathways for schools to choose from, designed to help all pupils develop a lifelong love of reading. These pathways work perfectly together. For example our Bug Club Independent Reception and Year 1 books within the eBook Library Pathway are fully decodable and matched to the Bug Club Phonics progression.
