At the Oxford Road Community School we believe in the concept of lifelong learning and that learning should be a rewarding and enjoyable experience for everyone. Through our teaching we equip children with the skills, knowledge and understanding necessary to make informed choices and to be able to lead happy and rewarding lives. We believe that providing pupils with a well- balanced, enriching and engaging literacy curriculum will aid them in developing into self-assured communicators. Our literacy policy will ensure that all pupils become confident speakers, listeners, readers and writers, preparing them for life.

Through our teaching of Literacy at ORCS we aim for children to be able to:

  • Read and write with confidence, fluency and understanding, orchestrating a range of independent strategies to self-monitor and correct.
  • Have a strong interest in books and read for enjoyment
  • Have an interest in words, their meanings; developing a growing vocabulary in spoken and written forms.
  • Understand a range of text types and genres – be able to write in a variety of styles and forms appropriate to the situation.
  • Be developing the powers of imagination, inventiveness and critical awareness.
  • Have a suitable technical vocabulary to articulate their responses.
