At St.Mary's we provide children with cross - curricular opportunities to learn and use the skills outlined in the English Programmes of Study in the National Curriculum.
We are passionate in making sure that children at our school:
  • Are life - long lovers of reading who are able to use their skills of reading to help them in the wider world.
  • Acquire skills and attitudes that will ensure that they become fluent writers in preparation for the next stage of their learning.

We have embedded a 'Talk for Writing' approach across the whole school so that children have a rich oral vocabulary and are able to rehearse their writing skills before they use them.
Below are the Programmes of Study outlined by the National Curriculum.
