An ambition that all Rowan Learning Trust children are clear and confident communicators is the life blood of what the wider Trust community stands for. Literacy is not just about reading, writing and comprehension. Literacy is not something that is ‘learned’ at school and then simply forgotten. Literacy is crucial to all aspects of life. The Rowan Learning Trust views high standards of literacy as one of the main keys that can unlock potential in all students and as such is committed to raising standards in literacy to help young people as they venture out into the world beyond formal education.
