Reading and Communication

We view reading and communication as the foundation of our curriculum. The bedrock from which everything else is built upon. We give reading and communication such high status as we believe that reading and communication can help removes barriers to learning, bring joy and happiness and further a young person’s independence as they communicate through their own individual methods.
