English at St Stephens Community Primary School

At St Stephens, we believe English is fundamental to success for all pupils.

They need to be articulate communicators, have a love of reading and be able to write for a range of audiences and purposes.

St Stephens teaches the National Curriculum.

The aims of teaching English, as outlined in the programmes of study ensure that all pupils:

  • read easily, fluently and with good understanding
  • develop the habit of reading widely and often, for both pleasure and information
  • acquire a wide vocabulary, an understanding of grammar and knowledge of linguistic conventions for reading, writing and spoken language
  • appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage
  • write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences
  • use discussion in order to learn; they should be able to elaborate and explain clearly their understanding and ideas
  • are competent in the arts of speaking and listening, making formal presentations, demonstrating to others and participating in debate.

The Subject Leader for English is Mrs V Jones.
