St Maria Goretti Catholic Primary School
English Statement of Intent
At St Maria Goretti, we believe that our high quality English curriculum will develop and inspire our children to become confident, independent learners who have a love of reading, writing and discussion. The English National Curriculum programme of study and The Early Years Framework are the basis for our curriculum and this is enriched by learning opportunities linked to high quality stories and texts. We place great emphasis on teaching our children to read and developing their comprehension skills. We recognise the importance of creating a culture where children take pride in their writing, can write clearly and accurately and adapt their language for a range of contexts. Through our exciting English curriculum we also want to develop essential speaking and listening skills and for our children to learn to express themselves creatively and imaginatively and communicate with others effectively.
Please see the reading, phonics and writing pages for how implement this in our school.
