At Dormanstown, we recognise the importance of English in the curriculum and in our daily lives. We believe pupils should be exposed to a wide range of texts which will enable them to access and learn about the wider world. Through a high-quality English curriculum, we aim to support children in developing skills that will enable them to be lifelong learners and have a profound influence on their progress in school.
Reading is crucial in enabling access in all areas of the curriculum. Children will be given opportunities to develop their knowledge and understanding within a broad and balanced curriculum, with opportunities to identify and build on prior knowledge within a sequence of learning. We aim to provide children with the best possible opportunities to become confident, literate and successful members of society with a deep love and understanding of English language and literature.
