At Writhlington, we aim to create 21st century learners, who will be successful in their future field of work. To fulfil their potential, students need to communicate confidently through writing and speech; they must listen carefully and be able to understand the written word.
All members of our school community support the drive to raise standards of literacy by having consistently high expectations:
Our SEN department identifies and provides support for students with the lowest reading ages and ensures that all staff are provided with strategies to support students with specific needs such as dyslexia.
A number of fun and engaging extra-curricular activities are planned throughout the year to promote high levels of literacy such as World Book Day, creative writing classes and the opportunity to participate in the Carnegie and Centurian Book Awards.
