Harris Academy Greenwich drives literacy standards

On the last day of the 2013 autumn term, Harris Academy Greenwich held Celebration Assemblies for each year group and presented every student and member of staff with a gift-wrapped book to read over the Christmas Holiday. The Christmas books are part of a wider drive at the school that aims to raise enthusiasm for literacy across the community. Some elements of the drive are traditional – for example a new Latin Club for students – whilst others are less so. Innovations include studying more modern fiction so that, alongside classics such as Wilde’s The Importance of Being Earnest, Harris Academy Greenwich students can look forward to reading and analysing the popular Hunger Games. Half-termly swap shops of the Christmas books have been arranged and students and staff can also join book clubs to discuss the literature they are reading. The Academy sees oracy as an important aspect of literacy and there are some brilliant debating competitions both within school and against other Harris Academies. To really embed and improve literacy across the curriculum, all lessons have adopted Drop Everything and Read (DEAR) time at the start of class, and teachers of all subjects mark for literacy as well as subject content. All Key Stage 3 students with a below expected reading age receive extra ‘Read Write Inc’ phonics sessions. George McMillan, Principal of Harris Academy Greenwich, said: “We’re trying to change the culture of reading in our community and nurture openly excited and enthusiastic readers. Although many of our students read frequently for pleasure, we also have some who might not have books at home and aren’t as engaged with literacy. “This really is a whole-school effort and our staff are enjoying discussing literature with students more frequently and getting a fresh perspective.The proportion of Harris Academy Greenwich students achieving five or more A*-C GCSE grades including English and maths rose by 12 percentage points last summer to 85%, an improvement of 57 percentage points from just three years ago.
