We are committed to promoting whole school literacy across all year groups in order to support their learning and raise standards.
Literacy underpins the school curriculum by developing students’ ability to: speak, listen, read and write for a wide range of purposes, using language to learn and communicate, to think, explore and organise. We know helping students to express themselves clearly orally and in writing enhances and enriches teaching and learning in all subjects.
Knowing how to spell correctly, how to read and write well, and how best to communicate ideas, thoughts and feelings are all vital life skills that will help children not just in school or in exams, but in the wider world of work and life as a whole.
We are committed to developing literacy skills in all our students, in the belief that it will support their learning and raise standards in all subject areas. Language is the prime medium through which students learn and express themselves across the curriculum, and all teachers have a stake in effective literacy.
