In Park Lane school we ensure that literacy is taught both as an academic subject and as a life skill. The main elements of literacy are: reading, writing and oracy (speaking and listening) which are all taught in an individualised way in our school ensuring that the pupils reach their full potential.
In order to encourage our pupils to achieve in literacy, we have looked at both the new curriculum and Literacy Framework and developed a tailor made curriculum for Park Lane which focuses on the individual needs, abilities and potential of all our students.
One of our aims in school is to ensure that every pupil has a successful way of communicating, whether that is through:
We have a HLTA in school who supports the teachers in ensuring that every pupil is catered for and every pupil receives the support and input they need to reach their potential. This is something we as a school feel passionate about and will work closely with families to support this.
