Our vision and purpose for English
All stakeholders share the schools vision to deliver quality English lessons which will develop and inspire a love of reading, writing and discussions.
Our aim is to deliver a curriculum linked to children’s experiences and to make links with the local area/ community. We recognise the importance of phonics, particularly to form a solid foundation on which to build their reading and writing skills. Within all other subjects, there is a high expectation that children will apply their phonological knowledge along with the non-negotiable skills listed for each year group. We recognise that each child is unique and will learn in a different way. Therefore, a multi-sensory approach is used to deliver lessons including the use of physical books, e-books, audio books, writing with pen/ pencil and other inspiring resources linked to the topic/ genre.
