Overall Curriculum Statement

Communication, Language & Literacy

'Teachers should develop pupils’ spoken language, reading, writing and vocabulary as integral aspects of the teaching of every subject. English is both a subject in its own right and the medium for teaching; for pupils, understanding the language provides access to the whole curriculum. Fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all subjects.'

At our school encouraging children to develop their language from an early age is of key importance. Using language starts as soon as children enter our nursery through the repetition of familiar songs and rhymes. Children very quickly learn the basics of communicating enhanced by a carefully planned phonics programme throughout the early years and key stage one. By key stage two more emphasis is placed on more complex spelling rules and the introduction of a foreign language (French).
