At Barlow Church of England Primary School we understand that English is at the heart of all learning. We know that quality speaking, reading and writing can bring joy, spark creativity and allows children to express themselves clearly. Being able to speak, read and write well allows children to understand the wider world around them and allows them to become skilled communicators at this school, their secondary schools and in their future adult lives. With this in mind, we want all children to leave Barlow school with the tools to enable them to participate in wider society using English for both pleasure and function.
We ensure that our English teaching and learning provides many purposeful opportunities for reading, writing and discussion. We use a range of tools to support our children’s progression in English. These are:
In the long term we want to provide a firm foundation so that when children leave our school they are ready and able to take their next steps on their English journey with confidence.
