 ‘Headway has been made in the development of literacy
  across the curriculum but it remains too slow in some
  schools, with insufficient consistency of approach across
  subjects.’ Evaluation of the Key Stage Three Strategy
  third year, OFSTED, March 2004

 OFSTED links the following factors with the effective
  development of literacy across the curriculum:
 a clear direction from senior staff
 appropriate support for literacy coordinators
 A requirement on subject leaders to include aspects of
  literacy in schemes of work and lesson plans
Activity 1: Key features of literacy
across the curriculum
In pairs:
 Sort the key features cards by placing
   them in the appropriate space on the A3
   sort sheet
On your table:
 Compare the results of your sorting tasks
   and discuss why some aspects have
   been established more easily than others
The impact of literacy on
achievement in subjects
71% of pupils who achieve Level 5 or
 above in English at the end of key stage 3
 achieve five or more GCSEs at grade C or
Only 10% of pupils who achieve below
 level 5 in English at the end of key stage 3
 gain five or more GCSEs at the higher
