At Chesterfield Primary School, we provide an appropriate, inclusive, engaging English curriculum.
The development of children’s language is crucial to their success across the curriculum. We want all children to be excellent communicators, to listen actively and to speak with confidence. At Chesterfield Primary School, children are helped to develop a love of reading and to become skilful and imaginative writers.
Our Foundation Stage and KS1 pupils follow the Read Write Inc. programme. In KS2, we follow our own English Comprehension programme, which has been designed to develop children into confident speakers and willing writers. The Read Write Inc. programme continues for children who need additional support or who are new to our school and need to develop their basic English language skills.
During all lessons across the school, children are actively encouraged to develop their spoken language capabilities and improve their listening skills through a wide range of activities.
