Our intent is for all pupils to be capable readers and writers with the ability to transfer their English skills to other subjects using a wide range of purposeful vocabulary.  

Our progressive English curriculum (Pathways to Write) is built on quality picture books, novels, poetry and non-fiction texts, which support children’s learning of the necessary skills and knowledge in reading to writing. Whenever possible, these texts will be linked to learning across the wider curriculum.

The Pathways to Write objectives for each year group can be found in the downloadable documents below.
