At EBN we recognise that students may have gaps in learning. This is one of our key foci in moving forward. As a school we identify needs and then provide ‘therapies’ to address them. The literacy support comes in many guises; reading support through accelerated reader and national reading tests, written communication support through our SEN support pack and personal learning checklists that hone in on key areas of weakness and allow us to move our students forward at an accelerated pace. Alongside this we also test regularly for spelling ages and update students spelling and reading ages every term.
