As stated in the National Curriculum, our overarching aim at St John’s and St Peter’s CE Academy is ‘to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.’ We strongly believe a high-quality English curriculum is essential. Reading is a life skill which unlocks the world – providing our children with a wide range of opportunities. We are committed to teaching children how to read and encouraging a love for reading where our children read to learn. High quality texts are used and shared with our children, using a talk for writing model to develop their writing techniques and begin their journey as an author.
