Literacy

The importance of good literacy in enabling our students to achieve their life goals goes without saying. Yet, many of our students enter our school with levels of literacy that require improvement.

We work hard to secure improvements in reading, writing and communication for our young people. 

 

We offer individualised programmes to effect rapid gains in literacy levels and we ensure that all curriculum areas have a clear focus on the development of literacy within specific curriculum areas. Marking and assessment regularly takes account of progress that needs to be made by individuals in literacy. 

This year it is our intention to use our Pupil Premium funds to raise levels of literacy at the PRU.
