At St James’ CE Primary School we believe that Literacy is a fundamental life skill and the key to learning for all children.

Our English curriculum is based on the New National Curriculum. Our overarching aim is to promote high standards of spoken and written language, high quality writing skills with an emphasis on spelling, punctuation and grammar plus a life-long love of reading for learning and pleasure. Year groups use the New National Curriculum to plan work which incorporates opportunities for developing the four key areas of reading, writing, speaking and listening. Children are encouraged to demonstrate their literacy skills in other subject areas as well with all written work being contained in their Learning Journey books.
