We value high standards of literacy at Acklam Grange School. We believe that improving literacy standards impacts significantly on self-esteem, motivation and behaviour. It is therefore our mission that all students are provided with the necessary literacy skills required to cope confidently with curriculum developments; prepare them for the requirements of future studies in further education and the needs of the adult world and future employment.
Students are given many opportunities to develop a refined vocabulary, consolidate their literacy skills and, through access to a diverse and challenging range of literature, are encouraged to read for pleasure. Moreover, students are made aware that the development of literacy is the key to success in all curriculum areas.
AGS Literacy is a platform dedicated to improving standards of literacy both at home and in school. Our aim is to create a culture in which students are aware of the need for accuracy and sophistication in the way they express themselves both in verbal and written communication.
AGS Literacy provides information about whole school literacy events; provides reading lists to encourage your child to aspire to read more challenging literature; showcases the outstanding written work of Acklam Grange students and enables you to access a range of support materials to assist you in the development of literacy skills in the home environment.
