At Lady Joanna we integrate all the modes of language into our literacy teaching so that the children are engaged in reading, listening, talking and writing in their literacy lessons. We ensure that our teaching strategies, methods and resources are appropriate for teaching the diversity of learners in our classrooms. The essential direct skills teaching is carefully balanced with more stimulating, contextually-grounded literacy and we make effective use of cross-curricular links.

We ensure that all the children in our care make good and often excellent levels of progress in literacy through quality teaching, high teacher expectation and careful and frequent monitoring of the children’s speaking and listening, reading and writing skills.
