Numeracy & Literacy

Numeracy and Literacy Across the Curriculum

At the Academy, we are all teachers of literacy and numeracy. We all make the commitment to improve standards in literacy and numeracy through thoughtful, pupil centred planning, uniform marking procedures and ensuring that this exceptional practice is part of every lesson. We ensure that every opportunity is taken to address literacy and numeracy.

The below outlines the ways in which we support both areas across the curriculum:

  • Pupils engage in specific activities that develop reading, writing, communication and mathematical skills

  • Pupils develop these skills through work that makes cross-curricular links with other subjects

  • Pupils will be provided with a range of opportunities, through different contexts, to continually develop and apply their knowledge and skills

  • Pupils develop extended writing skills, and therefore resilience, through consistent opportunities in all subject areas
