How English supports our school’s vision:
In English, our aim is to equip our children with the communication skills they will need to actively participate in society as 21st century learners and to inspire a love of literature and language. Every support will be given to children to develop skills to read fluently and with confidence so they can fully enjoy and engage with a rich range of literature and access information. Through discussion, they will make choices about their own preferences and learn to think critically, a skill which will enhance every area of their education. Writing will give opportunities to address different audiences and contexts for both pleasure and real purpose. Children will learn to express themselves creatively and be prepared to communicate effectively in various ways to achieve their aspirations.
