Our students need to be able to communicate effectively in speech and writing and to listen and read with understanding. They need these skills in order to be able to interact positively, not only with each other, but also within the diversity of rapidly changing working environments. 
The attached documents reflect the expectations of students and teachers across all subject areas. Students have a Literacy focus for each half term which will help guide them to self-evaluate their own communication skills and grow in confidence across all areas.
