English

The English Department has an energetic and forward-looking team who strive to inspire a love of reading and writing in the children. We aim to promote creativity and self-confidence in a positive and caring environment where every individual is encouraged to progress towards their full potential. Throughout there is a clear focus on the development of literacy skills which underpin all work across the curriculum. In both Key Stages 2 and 3 we aim to engender a love and appreciation of literature but also an awareness of non-fiction material and expose the children to a variety of writing styles and writing types.

Our approach is to develop our children as independent learners, equipping them with the skills that they will need in future life.

The pupils are organised into sets from Year 3 so as to support their learning skills and to help them reach their full potential. Lessons are planned to allow the children to participate in a wide variety of learning experiences; there is an emphasis on group and independent work with pupils being encouraged to develop as effective communicators and active learners.

The skills needed to craft writing effectively are explored to the full, so come and visit us to see for yourselves!
