Literacy is taught using the National Curriculum strategy from England.

BEPS recognises that language is fundamental to learning, underpinning and permeating the whole curriculum.

The language strands are interdependent, with listening, speaking, reading and writing (transcription, composition, vocabulary, grammar and punctuation) being taught and learned simultaneously.

Language is the major connecting element across the curriculum, with students focusing not only on language for its own sake, but also on the language of science, of history, of mathematics and other disciplines.
