LITERACY

We work with our students to foster a love of reading.  Strong literacy skills are a crucial factor in students reaching their academic potential at Hedingham School.  Reading, writing and communication skills are tackled by all Learning Areas using both subject specific as well as generic approaches.

We carefully track literacy specific data on students, through regular reading tests and literacy biased assessments, which we use to structure focussed intervention and support where needed.

Our whole school literacy "Splash" weeks help to raise the profle of literacy along with intermitten author visits, book weeks and "Speak Out" challenges.
