Reading, Writing, Communication & Maths

The school believes that the acquisition of Literacy and Numeracy skills is essential in order to allow all students to access the whole curriculum.

The school analyses information from Primary Schools extremely carefully to ensure that any gaps in the acquisition are closed rapidly.

All subjects promote Literacy and Numeracy and in Year 7 & 8 all subjects assess Literacy alongside their own subject assessments.

Reading and Numeracy are given a high profile in tutor time and all subjects use our We Care about Literacy standard marking codes.
