Literacy and Numeracy

Our vision is to ensure every child is equipped with strong skills, knowledge and attitudes in Literacy and Numeracy and help them to become expert learners who strive to continually improve self.

To ensure every child has foundations in Literacy and Numeracy we teach 300 minutes of weekly focused learning in each of the Maths and English learning areas.

Explicit teaching is the main method of delivering the learning in these key areas. Staff use a wide range of key data, gathered from formal and informal assessments, to ensure all students are supported, and ensure learning is differentiated to meet each child's individual needs.

Daily English and Maths lessons ensure students are provided with the fundamental skills in the areas of Literacy and Numeracy; skills that we know are essential for them to be lifelong learners and be able to effectively live and work in their world. All students across the school, with support from their class teachers establish and review their own personal learning goals in Writing and Numeracy.
