Literacy & Numeracy

High Literacy Needs Specialist 
Our specialist literacy teacher with a teacher aide is based in one learning pod but works with all teachers for children who come from homes in which English is not the first language.  It primarily caters for children with high needs in literacy.  Some of these children are English Speaker of Other Languages (ESOL), others – for a variety of reasons – are considered to be likely to benefit from the intensive literacy input in this classroom.  A high degree of analysis, formal English   and goal-setting is used.  The expertise of the teacher, and the depth and accuracy of the teaching in this room has received frequent praise from the Education Review Office.
