          You should only send your child to school on Monday if you have to, because your work is critical to our COVID-19 response. If you are able to keep your child at home, you should. //t.co/n1B1gngVWr

           improve their chances in life, and to enable them to succeed in whatever path they choose. We adopt a cross-curricular focus to promoting good literacy amongst our pupils and staff. We believe that promoting literacy is a whole academy responsibility and not just that of the English department. We also invite you to join us in developing your child's literacy at home.

          Bedrock Vocabulary

          At Harris Garrard Academy, we recognise how important vocabulary acquisition is not only to students’ reading ability, but also to their overall expression and academic attainment.

          Every child in the academy has access to Bedrock Vocabulary as their weekly home-learning. Bedrock Vocabulary is a computer-based e-learning website which develops students' reading skills through challenging fiction and non-fiction texts, as well as extending their vocabulary to include a wide variety of Tier-2 vocabulary. All students are supported in their use of Bedrock Vocabulary, as well as receiving explicit vocabulary instruction across the school and curriculum.
