Curriculum Intent Statement


We aim to develop pupils’ writing abilities within an integrated framework of Speaking & Listening, Reading and Writing. The teaching of writing is directly linked to the teaching of reading and therefore the two intents should be read in conjunction.


Pupils will be given opportunities to interrelate the requirements of English within a broad and balanced approach to the teaching of English across the curriculum, with opportunities to consolidate and reinforce taught literacy skills. Our English teaching is, wherever possible, embedded into our shine curriculum and taught alongside skills based lessons.


By the age of 11 we aim for children to be able to:

  •  read and write with confidence, fluency and understanding, orchestrating a range of independent strategies to self-monitor and correct.
  • have an interest in books and read for enjoyment.
  • have an interest in words and their meanings, developing a growing vocabulary in spoken and written forms.
  • understand a range of text types and genres – they should be able to write in a variety of styles and forms appropriate to the situation, including digital technology.
  • be developing the powers of imagination, inventiveness and critical awareness
  • have a suitable vocabulary to articulate their responses.
