Literacy and English

Literacy is fundamental to all areas of learning, as it unlocks access to the wider curriculum.  Being literate increases opportunities for the individual in all aspects of life, lays the foundations for lifelong learning and work, and contributes strongly to the development of all four capacities of Curriculum for Excellence.

Literacy consists of:

  • Listening and Talking
  • Reading
  • Writing
  • Modern Languages; children in the upper school are taught Spanish
