Article 31. Every child has the right to join in a wide range of cultural and artistic activities.
The ability to communicate freely, cohesively and accurately is a vital skill for all students. The English curriculum should enable students to develop these skills drawing upon a range of challenging and inspiring fiction and nonfiction texts. The department’s aim is to offer a coherent curriculum that allows students to build on their KS2 knowledge, developing these skills through reading, writing and speaking and listening to ensure all students become successful learners, confident communicators and critical citizens. It is our aim to offer students a range of texts to inspire a love of reading and to develop an increasingly sophisticated vocabulary. The curriculum will support cognitive development by ensuring all students have the opportunities to verbalise their thinking and socially construct ideas to ensure complex ideas are captured effectively in writing.
The curriculum should be differentiated to the needs of different students and student groups to ensure that all students make good or outstanding progress regardless of starting point.
