Literacy and Numeracy

Literacy skills are essential for young people to reach their potential in school and fulfilling opportunities throughout life. Arden has a rigorous whole-school literacy policy which is implemented systematically across the curriculum and which all teachers support and enforce regardless of their subject specialism. There are many initiatives throughout the school year such as the word of the week which students are encouraged to use in lessons. 

Numeracy is a key skill which is necessary to help achieve success throughout secondary education, further and higher education, employment and adult life. Arden Academy ensures students have opportunities to develop their numeracy skills through all subjects not just in mathematics. We focus on consistency between subjects, transferable skills and promoting resilience in learning.
