Raising the Achievement in Literacy and Numeracy in Special Schools

Numeracy, literacy and communication skills will be essential for our learners’ development and wellbeing. In this INSET, we shall be looking at many evidence-led creative and multi-sensory approaches to teaching in these areas. We want all learners have access to a full and meaningful curriculum as far as possible and this course will explore how this can be done in our unique circumstances.

  • Develop and evaluate and review your literacy and numeracy curriculum
  • Create a toolbox of inclusive and engaging and relevant games/activities
  • Understand the impact high expectations have on our learners
