Here, at Les Quennevais School, an innovation has recently been launched to promote proofreading skills.  Every Year 7 student has been issued with a ‘tool’, designed to encourage and prompt them to proofread pieces of writing, ensuring they submit work to their very best standard.  This innovation is in response to improving literacy and is the result of a well researched Sycol project aiming to build key skills in this area.  Although the tools have been created specifically for Year 7, teachers are also being encouraged to use the innovation and resources with all students.
