Literacy is the ability to read, write, speak and listen in a way that allows us to communicate effectively and make sense of the world. At Upton-by-Chester High School we place an importance on all learners further developing their skills of literacy. 

Our literacy policy follows the DRIVE framework.

D : Disciplinary Literacy

R : Reading Competency

I : Intervention 

V : Vocabulary 

E : Effective Feedback 

Literacy is led by the Whole School Literacy Leader, Mrs J. Thomson. It is line managed by a Senior Leader in the school, currently Mrs K. McCarthy (Deputy Headteacher).
