Here you will find all the information you need to know on how we teach English at St Margaret's, some of our initiatives that we undertake and any other key information. If you would like any more information about anything you have read, please speak to Mrs Lynch.
At St Margaret’s CE Junior School we intend 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 pleasure. We believe that language is the major connecting element across the curriculum, therefore, our focus is not only on language for its own sake, but also on its application across all subjects. It also facilitates connections with the wider community. Pupils will be exposed to high quality texts and engaging, purposeful writing opportunities to develop their language for school and making connections within their learning. As one of our four curriculum drivers, communication and language are key for the success of all of our pupils.
