English Curriculum Intent

It is our intention when teaching the English curriculum that our pupils acquire the necessary knowledge, skills and understanding to become lifelong learners and linguists as well as to immerse pupils in the wonders of quality texts. We strive to ensure that all our pupils receive engaging learning experiences when reading, writing, speaking and listening which will equip them with the fundamental tools to achieve.

At the heart of the English curriculum is the desire to instil a love of reading and writing in children and to encourage them to want to improve and refine their skills. We aim for them to leave our school with the language skills which will enable our children to communicate creatively and imaginatively, preparing them for their future journey through education and beyond.
