The Big 4 – Reading, Writing, Vocabulary and Oracy

The Big Four – Literacy

At West Derby School literacy underpins our teaching and learning and is at the heart of everything we do.

All staff, in every subject, recognise the importance of strengthening literacy to help pupils to access their curriculum areas and as a life skill – empowering our pupils and equipping each of them with the tools they need to become successful adults.

We are proud owners of the Liverpool Schools Reading Quality Mark – Gold Award and the Liverpool Writing Quality Mark – Platinum Award. We worked hard as a team to acquire these awards and we keep working to retain them.
