Literacy is a vital life skill and every child at Purbrook Park School has an entitlement to it. It enables pupils to gain access to the secondary curriculum, read for information and pleasure, and to communicate effectively. The teaching of literacy is the responsibility of all teachers at Purbrook Park School. It is important that all pupils are confident with reading, listening, writing and verbal communication in a wide range of contexts. This will ease their further learning, assist access to employment and enable them to complete everyday tasks.
With this in mind, literacy is a core focus within curriculum areas, PDL time and extra curricular activities across the school.
