At St Edburg’s, our vision is for excellence in all that we do. Each member of the school is committed to providing high quality learning activities and experiences so that children can achieve the best possible outcomes.
We do this through an ambitious English curriculum with texts as the beating heart of a lesson. The main driver of our English curriculum are high quality texts which foster a love of reading in our children and inspire them to write.
During their time at our school, our children will experience a wide range of carefully chosen, high quality, culturally diverse picture books and novels which inspire and help develop ambitious vocabulary.
We believe that teaching and learning cannot be a ‘one size fits all’ approach and so our text led English Curriculum has been shaped by our vision to enable all children, regardless of background ability or additional needs to flourish and become the very best version of themselves they can possibly be.
We teach the National Curriculum supported by a clear skills and knowledge progression. This ensures that skills and knowledge are built on year by year and sequenced appropriately to maximise learning for all children. Careful links are made across the curriculum to ensure that children’s English learning is relevant and, wherever possible, link our reading, writing and the topic that we are covering in History and Geography.
At St Edburg’s, children will be exposed to a bespoke, language rich, creative and progressive English curriculum which will not only enable them to become primary literate, but will also develop a love of reading, a deeper understanding and appreciation of the world around them and the ability to question others and develop their own informed points of view.
