Taking a whole-school approach to literacy, language and communication

In developing a whole-school approach to literacy, language and communication, schools, through their curriculum rationale, and ongoing professional learning, support staff to articulate:

  • the underpinning principle of taking a developmental approach to Emerging Literacy – effective differentiation which matches the teaching and learning to the needs of each child;
  • the whole-school approach in developing children’s concepts of print, oral language, pencil control, phonological awareness and working memory – both as a universal and a targeted approach, from Early Level (CfE) onwards.
