Vision Statement for English

At Christ the King Primary School we believe that Literacy is a fundamental and key life skill. Literacy develops children’s ability to listen, speak, read and write for a wide range of purposes. Children are enabled to express themselves creatively and imaginatively as they become enthusiastic and critical readers of stories, poetry and drama, as well as of non-fiction and media texts.



Phonics and Reading

The phonics and reading scheme we follow in EYFS and KS1 is called Little Wandle.
