At St. Paul's, we want all children to communicate with confidence and fluency to prepare them for lifelong learning.
To develop a passion for stories as well as learning the skills to extract information from texts. To ensure that all areas of the school curriculum can be accessed through excellent foundations in reading and writing. To provide opportunities for our pupils to develop writing across a range of genres.
By the end of the curriculum, our pupils will use a range of strategies for decoding words, and inferring the meaning of texts. Pupils will enjoy reading across different genres and will have a good knowledge of a range of authors. Pupils will have developed skills in written communication enabling them to write with purpose for an intended audience. Parents and carers will have a good understanding of how they can support their child's English at home.
Pupils will be ready to access the curriculum in any subject in their forthcoming secondary education.
