At Wadhurst Primary School, we aim to foster a love of language and literature through the use of quality texts to inspire, excite and engage our children. At Wadhurst, reading is a fundamental part of the school culture and, through carefully planned and sequenced lessons, we nurture all children to become confident writers who have an internal bank of stories and a knowledge of text types to draw upon. We recognise that English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. Through high quality teaching, we empower pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others, and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them.  

Through our carefully planned curriculum, we aim to support our children in developing culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually by exposing them to a wide range of texts and therefore allowing them to access a new world of joy and wonder.  

The National Curriculum Programme of Study states that ‘All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society; pupils who do not learn to speak, read and write fluently and confidently are effectively disenfranchised.’ At Wadhurst, we aim to provide our pupils with the knowledge and skills needed to flourish within the wider world around them.
