Literacy and Numeracy



We believe that all teachers are teachers of Literacy. Every two weeks, we have a Literacy focus which might be spelling, apostrophes, commas, paragraphs, connectives or key words. Click through to the Literacy page to find some examples of the strategies we use with students.


The purpose of Magna Academy's numeracy policy is to enable all our staff to have consistent expectations of the students’ use and understanding of mathematics across the curriculum and to promote the development of numeracy skills.

Each department can make a contribution towards improving numeracy skills so that students become confident at tackling mathematics in any context.

To do this, all subjects will incorporate relevant aspects of the policy and all subjects will use the agreed notation, formats and method when relevant.
