Curriculum Intent

Upon assessing our pupils on entry to school we aim to provide:


  • A curriculum that is rich in language and where reading is central to all that we do.
  • A reading scheme that enables pupils to read independently, fluently and with increasing understanding.
  • A reading scheme that enables pupils to understand and build upon the technical vocabulary which they will need to achieve well across the curriculum.


  • To use a good quality phonics programme that is taught with consistency and fidelity.
  • To develop a love of reading across school.
  • To ensure progress and momentum in early reading and writing which continues into Key Stage 2.
  • To provide a curriculum that is ambitious for all including Pupil Premium, SEN and EAL pupils
