“Mr Fox has started a breakfast literacy club with five students in Year 8 and five students in Year 9. The group is called ‘Jumpstart Literacy’ a name chosen by the students themselves. So far students have had two workshops. These are running once a week during form time. Students are provided with a breakfast to help them with their concentration levels.

Mr Fox said ‘The literacy group is another measure we have put in as a school to improve progress and student skills in this area. I am hoping that the work we do will have a real impact; leading to better progress throughout the curriculum. So far we have worked on spelling and apostrophes. The students have engaged exceptionally well and seem to be enjoying it’
