English Curriculum Statement
At Starbank, our English policy and practice is rooted in a sound understanding of the essential role of a high-quality education in English to continually nurture those skills of language that are vital in enabling each one of our pupils to experience educational success. We believe in an engaging and cohesive English curriculum that gives pupils the best possible opportunities to become confident, literate, successful members of society; with a deep love and understanding of English language and literature.
We aim to provide an engaging and cohesive English curriculum to develop pupils’ mastery of spoken language, reading, writing and vocabulary. We strive to continually reflect on and refine our curriculum design so our pupils enjoy their learning and make substantial and sustained progress in English, throughout year groups and across all subjects.
