Reading is the most important activity your child can do in order to make progress in all subjects.  Attitudes to reading are developed and learnt from parents.  Then, as we get older, this love of reading should continue to be supported and encouraged both at home and school. 

What do we do to promote reading outside of lessons at Claremont High School?

Literacy

Within school all teachers develop literacy in their own areas and use the literacy marking code which you can see here: Literacy Code link

Within form time once a week pupils also work on literacy skills and record these in their planners – examples of the pages in pupils’ planners can be seen here: Planner pages

Each subject area also has their own literacy placemats to aid learning.
