English and Literacy

In English and Literacy, learners are taught to read fluently, accurately and with understanding. We use phonics and the Read Write Inc. programme to support reading, comprehension, spelling and writing. We encourage learners to have an interest in books, read for enjoyment and to use reading to help them learn. An ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing are essential if our students are to achieve their potential throughout their school days and into their adult life.
