'With God all things are possible’


At Sir John Offley CE (VC) Primary School we deliver a creative, meaningful English curriculum.

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.

We use a range of quality texts to promote a love of reading and an interest in writing. These texts are often linked to the wider topic in each year group.

We spend a great deal of time planning our curriculum to ensure that it is delivered in an inspirational way so our children continue to love learning and coming to school.

We teach English using the ‘Talk for Writing’ approach. Talk for Writing enables children to imitate the key language they need for a particular topic orally before they try reading and analysing it. Through fun activities we enable children to rehearse the tune of the language they need, followed by shared writing to show them how to craft their own writing.  The English policy can be found on our School/Policies page.
