Welcome to the section of our website dedicated to literacy and numeracy.
At Brynteg, literacy and numeracy are very much a focus of learning and teaching and all teachers plan lessons around the expectations of the Literacy and Numeracy Framework (LNF). This whole-school approach to literacy and numeracy is helping us in our objective of raising standards of literacy and numeracy amongst our pupils. We also use the LNF to assess learner progress in literacy and numeracy skills by comparing their work to the expectations of the LNF. This enables teachers to set each pupil targets to support them in improving their literacy and numeracy skills. We also have a statutory duty to report to you on your child’s progress in literacy and numeracy as measured against the LNF expectations and these comments will appear in their annual report towards the end of the academic year.
In this section of our website you will find information on the strategies we use as a school to help improve literacy and numeracy. You will also find advice and support to help you to develop your child’s literacy and numeracy skills at home. By practising and consolidating the literacy and numeracy skills they have learnt in school we stand a much better chance of embedding these skills and helping your child to progress further.
If you require any further information regarding the Literacy and Numeracy Framework you can visit www.learning.gov.wales. Alternatively you can contact Mr C Wade (Learning Director: LNF) at school where we will be more than happy to answer any questions you may have.
