There is a strong focus on students’ literacy and numeracy skills within our curriculum. Our academy has a Literacy and a Numeracy Coordinator who promote the focus of these skills across the curriculum and our Directors of English and Maths support the development and tracking of these initiatives etc.
Reading programmes such as Accelerated Reader, are used and Reading millionaires promoted. We operate a Written Accuracy Campaign to focus students’ punctuation and spelling accuracy.
Spelling programmes operate and subject vocabulary is defined and promoted.
Marking codes are consistently used across subjects as is our ethic of excellence PROUD initiative.
In numeracy consistent approaches are promoted across subjects and programmes such as Numeracy Ninjas and Maths Rock Stars operate.
For those students requiring specific literacy and numeracy support, small group and bespoke programmes are provided.
