Across the English curriculum, we seek to provide rich, impactful learning experiences that lead to secure learner development and a high level of competence.


We aim to create a positive reading and writing culture: where both are promoted, enjoyed and valued by all. Our goal is for our learners to leave us as able readers and writers; learners who make informed decisions about reading preference rooted in their breadth of experience of high-quality text and instruction. Pupils should leave Langwathby proud of their capabilities and achievements across the English curriculum, ready to excel in the next chapter of their learning journey. 


We support children to write clearly, accurately and coherently: adapting their style in- and for- a range of contexts, purposes and audiences.  All learners revisit the core purposes for writing (to inform, to entertain, to persuade and to discuss) multiple times in any given learner pathway, to ensure progression, promote consolidation and enable connection.


Through high quality teaching of sequenced, progression-mapped units of learning, we look to provide opportunities to acquire a wide vocabulary; develop a solid understanding of grammar and develop learner voice. Our goal is to help learners recognise their own capacity for creativity, precision and excellence.


We want to inspire children to be confident in the art of speaking and listening. Our learners should leave us able to use their discursive skill to communicate and further their learning.


Where learners are ready to consolidate depth of mastery, we tailor experience to ensure challenge; where learners require adaptive practices to secure access or achievement, we will provide it creatively and compassionately. All of our learners are celebrated and their experience is centred in all that we do.
