Numeracy & Literacy
At The Henry Beaufort School our ambition is for our students to leave school equipped with the skills they need to be critical, independent, and informed young adults, able to use and decipher all of the information with which they will be bombarded in future life. It is therefore the shared responsibility of all teachers to work together to build the literacy and numeracy skills of all our students, in lessons, around the school site, and in the wider community. For this reason, students are encouraged to use and develop their skills across all subjects, in order to emphasise the importance and relevance they have for life beyond the classroom.
Both literacy and numeracy are essential skills required in the ‘outside world’. We employ whole school, cross curricular initiatives to support the work of the English and maths departments in raising standards and achievement in these areas, making sure that students recognise they use these skills outside these subject areas and helping them to apply their knowledge in everyday life.
