Key Stage 3 Literacy
MIS we aim to provide a supportive, stimulating and secure environment where
children are encouraged to express themselves orally and in writing. We provide
for the literacy development of students and forefront literacy as a means for students
to think, explore, recognise, interpret and communicate their ideas. We are
committed to raising the standard of literacy in the school in an inclusive and
supportive way. Our overall aim is to develop students who are efficient
language users. Literacy is one of the school’s major foci, and time energy and
resources are all allocated to achieving this aim.
library is a growing hub of the school and all students are given allocated
time to access its growing resources. Reading is crucial in literacy
development, and we promote the key concept that our students will read
fluently, will enjoy a wide variety of texts and will become independent,
analytical life-long readers and learners.
writing is an essential facet of the learning process. We are committed to
raising the levels of written communication across the curriculum. Our aim is
to develop effective writers, skilled in various forms of writing and adaptable
to audience and purpose.
believe that parents are vital to raising the standards of literacy in our
students. We are committed to effective communication wit and support for
parents as literacy facilitators.
