Literacy underpins the school curriculum by developing students’ abilities to speak, listen, read and write for a wide range of purposes, using language to learn and communicate, to think, explore and organise.  Helping students to express themselves clearly orally and in writing enhances and enriches teaching and learning in all subjects.  All departments and all teachers have a crucial rôle to play in supporting students’ literacy development.


You can find our literacy policy below, together with resources designed to help with writing at home.
