Orleans Park recognises that the development of literacy and numeracy is essential to improving learning and raising attainment across the curriculum.
Improving literacy and numeracy skills broadens students’ knowledge and experiences and facilitates independent learning.
Literacy skills allow students to explore the ways in which language works so that they can use this knowledge in a variety of situations. The ability to read, write, speak and listen is an integral part of the learning process.
We use numeracy in every aspect of our lives at work and in practical everyday activities at home and beyond. Numeracy skills help students to make informed and responsible choices and decisions throughout their lives.
All teachers and learning support assistants at Orleans Park are involved in raising students' literacy and numeracy skills.
