Overcoming Literacy Barriers
Overcoming Literacy Barriers

We realise that many parents would love to know how best to support their children with homework and general learning. Sometimes, a lack of confidence with literacy can be a real barrier to being successful in all subject areas. Our 'Removing Literacy Barriers' programme aims to help our students improve their access to an ever-complex curriculum by supporting them at school and at home with clear guidance on a range of cross-curricular literacy issues. The programme consists of a suite of resources which have been specifically designed to help students to improve their skills in the areas which commonly cause problems. These resources are being used in classroom and can be very easily reinforced at home.

How to access the materials:

Everything you need is below. Each section is clearly labelled and corresponds to one of the literacy areas that students may need support with. All you need to do is click on most relevant section to download the resource. All resources are accessible and easy to follow as they have been created with the students in mind. There are also tips at the foot of each column to help you make the best use of the resources.
