Participation Responsibility Independence Determination Excellence

Welcome to our school - full of happy, hard-working children and teachers. We want every child to participate fully, respect other people, be independent and determined in achieving excellence.

English

Reading

 

“Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society” English Purpose of Study, National Curriculum 2014, DFE    

 

We believe that Reading is an essential life skill and reading lies at the heart of our curriculum.

 

Intentions:

  • To foster a love of reading by listening to and interacting with a variety of literature, non-fiction and poetry.
  • Provide children with necessary life-long skills to ensure they can read confidently and with a secure understanding.
  • Build a community of engaged readers who turn to reading for meaning and pleasure. Provide regular opportunities for children of all ages to be read to, read out loud, and read independently.
  • Provide plenty of opportunities to read for pleasure. Engage in book talk with peers to recommend texts and consider own reading habits and preferences.  
  • Ensure reading is a transferable skill and that children are reading across the wider curriculum.
  • Develop a consistent approach to reading teaching and target pupils to achieve the highest possible number of children attaining expected or higher.

Writing

 

“English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and through their reading and listening, other can communicate with them” English Purpose of Study, National Curriculum 2014, DFE     

 

We believe that English is an essential part of the curriculum: A subject that not only stands alone, but one that is an integral part of all learning in school.

 

Intentions:

  • Deliver an engaging and exciting curriculum that inspires an enthusiastic attitude and children who want to write.
  • Create a love of language and support children to be articulate and confident communicators who express themselves clearly and engage in discussions.
  • Encourage children to be imaginative and creative, using ideas drawn from their wider reading and express themselves clearly through the written word.
  • Provide children with the life-long skills of grammar, punctuation and composition that will be essential throughout life.
  • Develop children into writers with an understanding of the writing process including planning, drafting, proof-reading and editing to enhance their work.
  • Provide regular opportunities for children to consolidate and reinforce taught skills, applying them in a range of contexts and for a range of purposes and audiences.
  • Create a culture where children love to write and take pride in their work.

Phonics

“Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society” English Purpose of Study, National Curriculum 2014, DFE    

 

We believe that Reading is a skill that makes all other learning possible and phonics is crucial to unlocking that reading code.

 

Intentions:

  • Deliver daily phonics through a high-quality phonics programme and consistently implement it to equip children with the skills they need to decode and become fluent readers.
  • To provide children with books that are closely matched to their phonic abilities so they can be successfully when practising.
  • To support children in catching up quickly and making ongoing assessments and targeting interventions.
  • Ensure the highest possible number of children possible pass the phonics screening check, with expectations that are aspirational yet achievable.
