ENGLISH at Chandlers Ridge

English is a lifelong skill and through its teaching we empower children to use it to inspire excellence in learning and life. Our English curriculum is designed to develop every child’s love of reading, writing and discussion to prepare them for a successful future.

Curriculum intent

  • We view the acquisition of language skills to be of the utmost importance in the social, emotional and intellectual development of children therefore the teaching of all aspects of English is given a high priority.
  • We aim to develop pupils’ abilities within an integrated programme of spoken language, reading and writing – striving for accelerated personal progress for all.
  • Pupils will be given opportunities to use English within a broad, diverse and balanced curriculum – consolidating and practising through cross curricula links.
  • We aim for children to explore a wide range of genres both in the written and verbal form and choose from these to create meaningful, purposeful work of their own.
  • The aim is for past knowledge to be revisited and consolidated to maximise progress for all so children know more, remember more and therefore do more.
