At Kinross PS we believe that students engage in Literacy effectively when:

  • Students are taught through direct instruction as part of a whole-school pedagogy.
  • Teachers are equipped with high quality, best practice approaches to ensure students are provided with quality, differentiated teaching and learning.
  • Opportunities for rich integration across the curriculum are frequent. For example, links to History and Geography to enhance learning.
  • Digital Technologies are integrated to complement learning across the Literacy curriculum.
  • The importance of student engagement through child centred learning is at the forefront of all planning.

Celebrating Literacy at KPS


At KPS we recognise the need to promote a love for Literacy and the vital role this can play in student engagement and achievement. We relish opportunities to bring Literacy to life in the classrooms through cross curricula links and active learning. In addition to this we also celebrate Literacy throughout the year by taking part in national and international competitions such as the Premier’s Reading Challenge. National Book Week is an exciting time for our school community with a packed timetable of engaging and fun activities.






Reading Eggs and Literacy Pro


Reading Eggs is the online learning platform used by students from Year 1 to 3 at KPS. It supports core literacy teaching in a highly interactive way to boost excitement and enthusiasm.

Literacy Pro is used by students from Year 4 to 6. It is designed to help students select books that will challenge them appropriately and encourage reading growth.
