At The Jenny Hammond Primary School, we believe that English and communication are key life skills. Through our English curriculum, we help children develop the skills and knowledge that will enable them to communicate effectively and creatively through spoken and written language and equip them with the skills to become lifelong learners. We want children to be capable and fluent readers and writers.
We believe that English is central to children’s intellectual, emotional and social development - it has an essential role across the curriculum and helps pupils’ learning to be coherent and progressive. It is at the heart of all children’s learning and enables children both to connect with others effectively for a variety of purposes and to examine their own and others’ experiences, feelings and ideas, giving these order and meaning.
