English


At St Mary and St Thomas, we believe that the ability to read and write transforms lives. Children’s developing use of language not only underpins their achievement across the curriculum, but it lays the foundations for active involvement in cultural life, society, work and lifelong learning. Communication and language lie at the heart of our capacity to imagine, think critically and creatively, problem solve, express thoughts and emotions, and make a crucial contribution to development as successful learners.

Secure and confident use in languages opens up many possibilities. English skills, including reading, writing and speaking and listening, ensure everyone can succeed in life equally, and enthusiasm and enjoyment for reading and writing is generated. Our aim is to ensure our English provision enables mastery of all aspects of the language and a keen understanding of our literary heritage.
