Maths Curriculum

English Spoken Language

The curriculum is designed to place emphasis on the advancement of spoken language skills, for this underpins the development of reading and writing. Pupils are encouraged to listen and respond appropriately to their peers and adults, ask relevant questions to deepen their understanding, articulate their answers and participate in class discussions, performances and presentations.

Reading and Phonics

Our passion and commitment to Reading promotes high standards of literacy and aims to develop pupils’ love of literature. Our aspiration is for all pupils to start reading, with support, by the end of year 2, in order to access our curriculum and to develop the habit of reading regularly, both for pleasure and knowledge. However, we anticipate that for many pupils, this timeline will need to be flexible and our approach will be entirely tailored to the individual child and their needs. All pupils are encouraged to read widely across both fiction and non-fiction texts to develop their knowledge of themselves and the world in which they live, to establish an appreciation and love of reading and to gain knowledge across the curriculum. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Where pupils require support with their reading, intervention and additional targeted learning will be put in place. It is our commitment to our pupils that they will all leave their primary education with the ability to read fluently and with confidence.

Writing

English and Literacy is at the forefront of our curriculum. A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to write fluently and allow them to access all aspects of our broad and balanced curriculum. The skills of transcription and composition are built into our thematic and stand-alone lessons, inspiring opportunities for our pupils to develop a clear set of writing tools to enable them to make progress. Our pupils will progressively acquire the skills of spelling, punctuation and grammar to enable them to communicate effectively through the written word.
