At Trinity St Mary’s, English has a high priority and is taught through high-quality, diverse and interesting texts with clear objective.  Teachers ensure children are given a wide and exciting range of opportunities to develop their speaking, listening, reading and writing skills to the highest level, thus enabling pupils to access all areas of a rich and relevant curriculum.  We believe that a secure basis in literacy skills is crucial to a high quality education across the curriculum. At Trinity St Mary’s, we whole-heartedly ‘promote high standards of literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment' (National Curriculum 2014). 


At Trinity St Mary’s, we firmly believe that English proficiency is a cornerstone of a well-rounded education. We recognise that the ability to read, write, and speak effectively is essential not only in English lessons but across all subjects. To foster this crucial skillset, we integrate writing opportunities into multiple disciplines throughout our curriculum.


Writing is taught throughout our creative curriculum with a focus on using high-quality, engaging literature, carefully chosen so that children have the opportunity to read and write a balance of different text types. We seek to ensure all children are confident speakers, readers and writers by the end of their time at Trinity St Mary’s.


Reading has a very high priority in our school.  Children are immersed in an environment that promotes reading as a positive and exciting gateway to lifelong learning.  We encourage children to read for pleasure, to share their love of reading with other pupils and to be inspired by the rich texts that they are exposed to every day.  Reading is a key aspect of everyday teaching.
