Spoken Language

We believe in the importance of spoken language in children’ development across the whole curriculum – cognitively, socially and linguistically.

Spoken language underpins the development of reading and writing. The quality and variety of language that children hear and speak are vital for developing their vocabulary and grammar and their understanding for reading and writing. Children use spoken language to explain their understanding of books and other reading, and to prepare their ideas before they write. Teachers ensure the continual development of children’ confidence and competence in spoken language and listening skills.

All children participate in drama, adopting, creating and sustaining a range of roles and responding appropriately to others in role.


"Strong relationships built upon Christian values are at the heart of this church school and result in a passion and drive to ensure the all-round development of the children."
