English INTENT statement

At Little Horsted Church of England Primary School, we aim to provide a language rich learning environment, which encourages and enables children to become fully literate, whilst gaining satisfaction and enjoyment from spoken and written language. Through effective planning, teaching and assessment we provide all our pupils with flexible opportunities for hearing, seeing, creating and responding to print at levels appropriate to their individual development, whilst fulfilling the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage and the National Curriculum. The English teaching we provide allows our children to fulfil their potential while giving them the skills to understand and use language in all its aspects. We aim to include and engage our pupils in high quality learning experiences using exciting diverse, rich texts which will foster passions for life long reading and enable them to embrace literature in its many forms; while also providing them with the confidence and competence to communicate effectively in both speech and writing.  


“The overarching aim for English in the national curriculum is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.” – National Curriculum 2014
