Due to the change in government guidance Year 8 and Year 10 parents' evenings planned for December will be postponed until further notice.

Literacy focus

We have three literacy expectations of students at all times.

We want all students to understand the importance of developing reading, writing and oracy skills. We recognise that it is the responsibility of all staff from all subject areas to teach literacy skills: reading, writing, speaking and listening are integral to all subjects.

In order to raise the profile of literacy, to support students with their learning and to raise standards across the curriculum, there are three ‘literacy’ expectations of all students at all times:

  1. Reading book in their possession (reading) 
  2. Speak in full sentences and no slang (speaking) 
  3. Track the speaker/s (listening)

There is also 30 minutes reading time three times a week during tutorial sessions. Students are expected to complete tasks such as:

  • read in silence
  • discuss their reading
  • complete a reading log
  • complete book reviews

Tutors are required to model reading aloud and reading in silence facilitate class discussion and check reading logs.
