Literacy is at the heart of the school’s curriculum. Improving children’s communication skills is essential when equipping them for the future. Teaching and learning in every subject is enhanced when children are able to express themselves clearly and confidently both orally and in writing. Furthermore as fluent readers, learners are able to access the full range of learning resources available to them and are empowered to become increasingly independent and reflective thinkers. Our children are encouraged to value literacy and feel rewarded when they use language to think, explore and organise.
