It is regarded as a high priority to give children confidence in Literacy. They are encouraged to:
- Talk clearly and confidently in groups or independently in both formal and informal situations.
- Read accurately, with understanding, both for pleasure and to seek information.
- Write short factual, imaginative and personal pieces with good attempts at spelling.
- Develop legible handwriting.
The children will read many books whilst in school, including those from a range of formal reading schemes, they will follow a reading course matched to their needs and abilities. The school follows the National Literacy Strategy.
