English (2023-24)


At the core of our English curriculum lies our aim to install a love of reading, writing and discussion, in all children, regardless of background and ability.

We inspire an appreciation of our rich and varied literary heritage and an eagerness to read widely and often. Our English curriculum reflects, and is a celebration of the diversity of our school community through our choice of books, authors, topics and creative and enrichment opportunities. Our texts are chosen very carefully to ensure that they are challenging, engaging and inspirational. We nurture a culture where children take pride in their writing, can write clearly, imaginatively and accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of audiences and purposes. We inspire our children to be confident in the art of speaking and listening and to use discussion to promote pupil voice and communicate, and develop further their ideas and learning across the curriculum.

Our English curriculum is progressive and promotes the academic, social and spiritual development of every child to help them prepare for life as successful and socially responsible citizens in secondary school and beyond.
