Literacy Support

Where students have difficulties in Literacy development, specialist staff are on hand to provide support and guidance in developing proficiency in Literacy.

Morning tutorials include group literacy development through the reading and sharing of topical news stories from broadsheet and tabloid newspapers; the focus here is on developing confidence in speaking and listening activities.

Targeted intervention is available for all students, where appropriate, following an assessment by our Therapeutic team, headed by Dr Ramsay.  Current programmes include Toe by Toe, a specialist phonetic development programme used specifically for those students where gaps in literacy development are evident.
