It is our school policy to develop in children the ability to understand, use and enjoy English as fully as possible.  This will be achieved by extending capabilities in:

  • Spoken Language;
  • Reading;
  • Writing.


Children should:

  • learn to listen actively and so develop concentration and comprehension skills;
  • develop the ability to express themselves verbally in a variety of situations;
  • achieve enjoyment and success in their use of and response to books and other written materials;
  • develop the ability to read, understand and respond to a wide range of text types, including fiction and non-fiction;
  • be able to write in a variety of forms for different audiences and purposes;
  • become confident in handling ICT to improve their reading and writing skills;
  • learn to express their meaning clearly in writing through:
  1. well-formed cursive writing;
  2. imaginative use of vocabulary;
  3. an adequate spelling vocabulary and/or strategies for spelling unknown words;
  4. correct punctuation;
  5. accurate use of grammar conventions.
