The area of English is made up by the three areas of reading, writing and spoken language. Basic skills in this area are fundamental to our pupils in preparing them for life after Longcause and we place utmost importance on developing and extending these skills in purposeful and realistic ways.
We are excited this year to be introducing Read, Write, Inc as our validated phonics scheme. Our pupils are responding fantastically to this programme and we are already seeing great progress in their reading and writing.
At KS4 pupils follow a Functional approach to English and Year 11 pupils will leave with an accredited outcome in English Functional Skills which will range from Entry Level 1 through to Level 2.
