The teaching of reading and writing has always been integral to the school and is spread throughout the whole curriculum.


There are three elements of English in the National Curriculum:


  • Speaking and Listening: Children are encouraged to express themselves confidently and effectively for a variet of occasions and purposes, and to listen attentively.
  • Reading: We support and encourage children through the stages of reading so that they develop into independent, fluent and expressive readers with increasing understanding and taste, and for whom reading is a pleasure and an enjoyable experience.
  • Writing: The aim of the writing curriculum is to enable pupils to communicate and record their ideas, observations and thoughts clearly and confidently to different people in a variety of ways. The writing process includes spelling, punctuation and grammar and children are taught to develop a legible style of written English.


Our phonics scheme is Read Write Inc. Parents can find helpful information about the way Read Write Inc. teaches phonics at the link below.
