English - Ardfern School

The development of competent Literacy skills is essential and the young people to engage fully in society and in learning, through the different forms of language, and the range of texts, which society values and finds useful. Competency in Literacy is essential to successful learning.

The core teaching programme from P4 to S3 is based on the outcomes and experiences set out within the ‘Curriculum for Excellence’ framework for languages and covers listening and talking, reading and writing. Literacy is promoted throughout the whole curriculum with opportunities provided in all subjects to apply skills learned.

At Ardfern our delivery of the curriculum takes account of the need for flexibility to motivate and encourage pupils to develop to their fullest potential. To aid this computer software is available, if necessary, to support learning.
