National Literacy and Numeracy Frameworks

Literacy and numeracy skills are essential in order for children to reach their potential.

Curriculum Planning

All teachers use the revised frameworks as a nucleus for planning. Each session includes a developmentally appropriate literacy and / or numeracy skill.

This ensures that children make links between the skills they have been taught in their literacy and numeracy sessions and other areas of the curriculum e.g topic based learning.
