English Curriculum


In English and supported throughout all subjects, we aim to empower and enrich our children’s vocabulary and so prepare them for the next stage in their educational journey (and beyond) so that no child is hindered or held back by a deficit of language. We want them to be able to articulate themselves and their learning through a wide bank of subject specific terminology as well as being creative and innovative in their speech and writing. We aim to inspire our children to become fluent, confident life-long readers who can discuss the joy of literature as well as develop their own style and expression through wide opportunities for writing.
