English Mission Statement

We at St. Elizabeth’s Catholic Primary aim to provide a lively, stimulating environment in which staff are committed to encouraging individual, group and class activities which promote rich and appropriate speaking, listening, reading and writing experiences.

Children come to our school with varying levels of language skill which we extend and deepen through a variety of language experiences.

All English teaching will contribute to skill development in the following areas:

  • Speaking and Listening
  • Reading
  • Writing

 

Our Vision

We believe that English is a fundamental life skill enabling children to develop their speaking, listening, reading and writing for a wide range of purposes. The knowledge and skills involved in speaking and listening, reading and writing are vital to success within all areas of education.

We believe that sound English skills are a necessary preparation to allow our pupils to effectively engage in adult life. English also fosters the ability to use language purposefully and creatively, to encourage powers of imagination and to promote spiritual, moral and cultural understanding.
