This area of the strategy is led by Mrs J. Thompson. 

Research suggests that learners need to understand 95% or more of the words on a page to have a strong comprehension of a text. Even learners with comprehension as high as 90% can struggle to decipher or ascertain the meaning of the unknown 10% of words on a page. 

Learners are exposed multiple times to new vocabulary through rich and varied activities to glean meaningful information about the word. 

Departments are developing Knowledge and Vocabulary Organisers (KVO) across all year groups to support the literacy needs of learners. Where the KVOs are in place, learners will have a copy and will be able to access them via their Show My Homework school account.
