Overview, aims and objectives

English occupies the largest part of our timetable of any subject with one hour a day of English lessons. In addition, even more time is set aside to develop reading skills explicitly. We structure each year group to ensure a balance of English themes and topics in each year group and a progression of skills across the school. We link work to other areas of the curriculum where this is most appropriate but also teach purely text-based literature units of work, poetry and non-fiction.

Our aim is that all children

 - are excellent communicators
 - are literate and
 - develop a love of language and literature
