By its nature, the teaching of English extends into all aspects of school life and literacy skills are promoted across the whole curriculum.
The curriculum is grouped under the three Attainment Targets for English which are: Speaking and Listening,Reading and Writing and includes the systematic teaching of phonics. Key Stages 1 and 2 follow units of work based on the Primary Framework for Literacy while the Foundation Stage follows the Early Years Foundation Stage Curriculum.
In addition, literacy skills are constantly being developed, reinforced and practised in all other subjects. Children are taught the Sassoon handwriting style throughout the school and follow the letters and sounds phonics programme.
