Literacy and Communication
At John O’Gaunt, we are determined to give our students the very best education possible, via a broad and balanced curriculum, to enable them to realise their potential and take their place in a rapidly changing society.
A core focus on developing writing skills, reading for comprehension and pleasure, and oracy are vital in preparing students for the wider world of work and further study and these aspects form the bedrock of our Curriculum offer at John O’Gaunt. We want every student to gain the skills they need to lead successful and fulfilling lives, whatever their interests and whatever their starting point.
On this page you will find some resources that will help YOU to help US support your child’s literacy and communication skills.
