Supporting Literacy at home 

One of our key priorities at LSA is to develop oracy and communication so that our children are articulate and able to speak and write with confidence and accuracy in every area of the curriculum. Supporting your child at home is one of the most important things you can do to help develop their literacy skills.

We firmly believe that a collaborative approach to supporting Literacy will enable our students to succeed in every subject and become confident, independent young people.
