Literacy Review

During October and November the four schools in the Family participated in a review of English and cross-curricular literacy with Phil Jarrett HMI, who made two visits to each of the schools to review with the schools their practice in relation to literacy and English.  On 29 November the four schools came together to discuss the findings and share experience and ideas about how to embed a real love of reading and writing among students at RSA Academies.

We hope to improve the teaching and learning of literacy and English which we hope over time will feed through to improved GCSE results.  We will look at the way in which reading and writing are currently supported across the whole of each school and then develop plans which will support and encourage all pupils to develop their literacy skills and a love of reading.
