Numeracy & Literacy

Support your Child’s Numeracy and Literacy Development

We would like to encourage parents and carers to help pupils develop their skills when they are outside the classroom. The techniques illustrated are used in all subject areas at Studley High and we would like you to reinforce these approaches at home.

Numeracy:

The following notes will help you when supporting your child with their homework tasks, in all areas of the curriculum, to promote the development of their numeric skills.

Here is the link for mymaths: https://www.mymaths.co.uk/

The school password for MyMaths is given to all students, as well as their own personal log in to the portal to access their weekly homework.
Parents can work with their child and as well as providing homework and there is a wealth of resources on the full KS3 & 4 curriculum, which students can use as they wish to improve their Maths.
Pupils can speak to their Maths teacher at any time, if they have forgotten their password, or if parents also would like the log in details.

Literacy:

It is important that parents and carers are aware of the significant contribution they can make to their children’s learning by supporting the school’s literacy agenda at home. This has implications beyond literacy and extends to all areas of your child’s educational development – now and in the future.

Accelerated Reader
KS3 pupils identified as needing additional support with their reading are enrolled on the Accelerated Reader programme.  As part of their regular library lessons, pupils’ reading ages are regularly monitored and personalised recommendations are made to ensure that pupils read appropriately challenging books.
