Literacy Policy

All teachers should:

 ‘Demonstrate an understanding of and take responsibility for promoting high standards of literacy and the correct use of standard English, whatever the teacher’s specialist subject.’ (Teacher standards September 2012.)

This policy gives guidance to staff on Literacy and should be read alongside the Teaching and Learning Policy, Marking Policy and Assessment Policy.


At The Link School, we believe that language and literacy is fundamental to the overall development of children and their access to the curriculum in all aspects. We also believe that in the society in which we live, an ability to communicate effectively, both orally and in writing, and to read a wide range of texts is essential if children are to achieve their potential throughout their school days and into their adult life.
