At St Benedict’s, we are dedicated to encouraging all children to be passionate about reading and writing. We are determined that ALL children will become highly competent readers and writers by the end of their time with us. It is our intention to immerse pupils in the wonders of quality texts to instil a love for reading, a passion for discovery and a confidence to explore their imagination. During their time at St Benedict’s, all children will be exposed to a high-quality education in English. This will not only teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others, and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them
At St Benedict’s, the English Curriculum consists of:
We strive to ensure that our children's attainment is in line with or exceeds their potential when we consider the varied starting points of all our children. We measure this in KS1 by using Benchmarking and PIRA assessments. In KS2 our assessment is through whole class reading and PIRA assessments. Our intentions are that our English curriculum will ensure our pupils are academically prepared for life beyond primary school and throughout their educational journey.
