While initial assessment of literacy levels takes place as part of English, the delivery of literacy is very much a cross-curricular issue and individual literacy targets will be focused on within different subjects.
- A programme of literacy support is offered to pupils on a one to one basis.
- Staff use different teaching styles to support literacy in the classroom.
- We use the ‘Lexia’ program alongside reading support.
- One to one reading opportunities are embedded.
