Literacy and Numeracy

There is a strong focus on students’ literacy and numeracy skills within our curriculum. Our Maths and English teachers promote the focus of these skills across the curriculum and with our Directors support the development and tracking of these initiatives etc. Our Alternative Provision provides a variety of programmes and initiatives such as Accelerated Reader. (see Reading below). We operate a Written Accuracy Campaign to focus students’ punctuation and spelling accuracy. Spelling programmes are used and subject vocabulary is defined and promoted in lessons. Marking codes are consistently used across all subjects. In numeracy consistent approaches are promoted across subjects and we use programmes such as Numeracy Ninjas.  For those students requiring specific literacy and numeracy support, one to one bespoke programmes are provided.
