Strands of Learning


Our intention is that these are part of everything that we do at the Edith Borthwick School.

We aim to develop learners’ cognition and skill in these areas in an age appropriate manner, looking to decrease dependence on adults.

We broadly view reading as ‘taking meaning from a visual stimulus’. Reading skills are a key focus across the school with access a wide variety of visual stimuli linked to cognitive development, ranging from objects, photos and symbols to set reading schemes and dedicated reading/phonics sessions.

Our vision and shared values sit at the heart of all we do and permeate through all learner pathways and experience.
