A Vision for English

English plays an important role in both education and in society as a whole. In order to
participate fully as a member of society, all the skills of language are essential. Therefore, at
Lidget Green, we believe our pupils should be given every opportunity possible to develop
their reading, writing, speaking and listening skills so that they may cultivate the tools
necessary for a happy and successful life.
We are committed to ensuring that our pupils are able to read and write with confidence,
fluency, understanding and enjoyment and are successful in transferring knowledge, ideas
and skills between subjects. By promoting high standards of literacy, our aim is to equip our
learners with a strong command of the written and spoken word, thus enabling them to use
Standard English correctly to express themselves imaginatively and clearly.
We develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment. By
encouraging our pupils to appreciate our rich and varied literary heritage we aim to support
their literacy development beyond their primary school career.
