English Curriculum

We have been developing our love of Reading this year and more can be seen here https://brudenellprimary.co.uk/leeds/primary/brudenell/staging/pages/readingatbrudenell?designMode=true

Our intention

English or being literate in any language is a fundamental life skill; it develops the children’s ability to communicate effectively - to listen, speak, read and write for a wide range of purposes.

Children are enabled to express themselves creatively and imaginatively as they become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as a range of non-fiction texts.

Children gain an understanding of how language works by looking at its patterns, structures and origins. Children use their knowledge, skills and understanding across a range of different situations.

Brudenell Primary School works to ensure that all children develop the ability to communicate effectively and that any barriers to learning are swiftly identified and

steps taken to remove them.



1. To enable children to use and understand language as speakers, readers and writers.

2. To encourage children to be competent, confident and independent in the use of language.

3. To provide the opportunity to monitor and assess the language development of each child.

4. To develop children’s awareness of different audiences and purposes for speaking and writing.

5. To enable children to use the English language in all areas of the curriculum.

6. To encourage a whole school approach to language.

7. To identify as soon as possible any children having special educational needs so

any barriers to learning can be overcome.
