Under a Curriculum for Excellence all subjects have a responsibility for developing literacy across the curriculum. To further this, staff at Bishopbriggs Academy have developed a number of strategies to help pupils improve their literacy skills. These initiatives include:
To assist pupils with improving their spelling and vocabulary, staff have produced a Literacy Toolkit for S1 pupils. This contains a list of common terms and vocabulary used in each subject. The toolkit is available here.
Throughout the school all staff use the same correction code when correcting pupils' work. This ensures consistency across the curriculum and helps pupils to understand the corrections made.
For further information on assisting your child with literacy, Education Scotland have an excellent website with a range of useful guides to assist with common problems and mistakes in spelling, punctuation and grammar.
