    Literacy

    'Research shows that people with good literacy skills (reading, writing and verbal communication) are more likely to have higher self-esteem, better health, better jobs and higher wages than those with poor literacy skills. They are more able to take advantage of the opportunities that life may offer them.'

    We take developing our students' literacy skills very seriously and use a range of strategies to support their development across the curriculum. Please explore this section of the site to discover materials we have created to support literacy in the classroom and beyond.
