English is the facilitator for all subjects and is essential to participating fully as a member of society. Such importance is reflected in the dominant role we have nurtured for it in our school. Its mastery empowers the learner and is essential for independent learning. We continually strive to plan and deliver an outstanding English curriculum by; planning opportunities for creative and ‘real life’ learning, providing high quality resources and planning for a balance of knowledge and skill based learning.


Long term planning frameworks reflect our high expectations for the teaching of Reading, Writing, and Speaking and Listening. These frameworks ensure continuity and progression.


The curriculum for English aims to ensure that all pupils:


  • read easily, fluently and with good understanding
  • acquire a wide vocabulary and understanding of grammar
  • appreciate our rich and varied literacy heritage
  • write clearly and coherently, adapting language and style in, and for, a range of contexts, purposes and audiences
  • use discussion in order to learn
  • are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations and participating in debate
