Literacy at Holly Lodge
At Holly Lodge Girls’ College, it is our belief that all teachers are teachers of literacy. We are committed to developing literacy skills in all subjects across the curriculum, believing that it will support the learning of all students and raise standards in every subject.
We therefore believe that:
- Literacy is a right for all pupils
- Every teacher is responsible for the development of literacy
- Literacy should be developed across all areas of the curriculum.
