The aims for English, as set out in the National Curriculum, are to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
The National Curriculum for English aims to ensure pupils:
At Christleton Primary School our aim is to develop pupils’ abilities within an integrated programme of Speaking and Listening, Reading and Writing, with a high focus on basic skills in spelling, punctuation and grammar. Pupils will be given opportunities to interrelate the requirements of English within a broad and balanced approach to the teaching of English across the curriculum, with opportunities to consolidate and reinforce taught literacy skills. English is split into three areas as defined by the National Curriculum - the spoken word, reading and writing.
