Literacy

Literacy

When every student joins the school, they are quickly assessed for their reading level. This enables the Literacy department to tailor the curriculum to their individual needs and to set Literacy targets for use in all curriculum areas. Some students then receive additional one-to-one reading support, to ensure that they make age appropriate progress. The school currently uses the Read Write Inc. reading scheme, details of which can be found at www.ruthmiskin.com In whole-class Literacy lessons, students cover a range of Spelling, Punctuation and Grammar units, in addition to independent reading and can achieve AQA Unit Award Scheme certificates for their work.
