At Cowes Enterprise College we are committed to promoting whole school literacy across all year groups in order to support their learning and raise standards.
Literacy underpins the school curriculum by developing students’ ability to: speak, listen, read and write for a wide range of purposes, using language to learn and communicate, to think, explore and organise. We know helping students to express themselves clearly orally and in writing enhances and enriches teaching and learning in all subjects.
We are committed to developing literacy skills in all our students, in the belief that it will support their learning and raise standards in all subject areas. Language is the prime medium through which students learn and express themselves across the curriculum, and all teachers have a stake in effective literacy.
We promote high standards of literacy across the curriculum and one way of doing this is through a standardised, video approach to five key strands of literacy. We call it FEAST.
