Disciplinary Literacy

Read Like a....

We think hard about what it means to be literate in each discipline/subject and build the necessary skills into our curriculum. We also recognise the gaps in pupil literacy and continue to develop curriculum to bridge these gaps.

 The curriculum vision incorporates the literacy strategy and training puts the onus on each discipline to create well-designed schemes of work to develop literacy within their subject.  We recognise that reading like a scientist has different skills to reading like a historian.  At Stuart Bathurst each department has identified the reading skills that students should develop to ensure progress in each area.
