Our English Curriculum is designed to ensure we carefully consider the starting points of our pupils in speaking, listening, reading and writing and build on their knowledge and skills from what we know. This in-depth knowledge of what our children know and where they need to go next, allows pupils to develop rapidly, ensuring they are able to speak and write fluently in order to communicate their ideas and emotions to others.
Through their reading and listening skills, others can communicate with them. We hold the ability to communicate in a range of ways, in high regard for our children.
We strive for our children to develop their voice and are able to share their ideas with others. In support of this, we ensure children are exposed to rich and varied vocabulary to help prepare them for life outside of their home town. Through reading and well-chosen literature pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually.
