Literacy is a fundamental part of our curriculum, which through high quality teaching of reading, writing and speaking and listening enables children to access all areas of the curriculum. Our literacy curriculum allows our children to develop our three core values of responsibilityresilience and respect.

The early stages of reading allow children to have secure and embedded phonic knowledge to support them with sounding out unfamiliar words.  As these skills develop, they will become fluent readers able to use their skills across the curriculum beginning a life- long love of reading.  This allows them to become successful members of a literate community.  Children are encouraged to explore texts at depth, answering questions, giving opinions and showing a growing understanding of a wider vocabulary.  Children demonstrate resilience when answering questions about texts when the answer is not immediately available to them.
