“Teachers should develop pupils’ spoken language, reading, writing and vocabulary as integral aspects of the teaching of every subject. English is both a subject in its own right and the medium for teaching; for pupils, understanding the language provides access to the whole curriculum. Fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all subjects.”                                                              National Curriculum (DfE 2014)

We believe that when children are given exciting experiences, from any stimulus, they can be inspired. They will not only learn to develop their own ideas but then share them through spoken and written communication. We aim to teach literacy by providing these stimulating experiences and help motivate children to enjoy and understand their learning through all subjects. Through these positive experiences we endeavour to equip children with the language skills they need to become effective communicators and language users as members of their community and the wider world. English is taught in the context of a broad and balanced curriculum and is guided by the structure of the Primary National Curriculum 2014.

World Book Day 2019

World Book Day was celebrated by dressing as favourite bible characters and those who made the world a better place. Both children and staff looked amazing in their costumes.
