We were delighted that in our Ofsted report the inspectors were so positive about the support the children receive with their reading, "The school spots any pupil who struggles with reading and provides extra help. This allows pupils to gain confidence and read with fluency."

Purpose of Study (taken from The Primary National Curriculum in England 2014 Key Stages 1&2 Framework)

''English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. A high-quality education in English will teach 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 reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know.''

Please see the documents below to gain a full understanding of our English curriculum here at Selborne, including the intent, implementation and impact which can be found in the curriculum statement.
