"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free." — Frederick Douglass


At Kingsway Primary School, we strongly believe that a sound understanding of English provides a solid foundation for all future learning. As well as reading and writing, we focus specifically on developing skills to help children speak, spell, listen and learn.

We have developed a rigorous curriculum to ensure that, throughout their time at Kingsway Primary School, all children continually develop their skills and achieve our English aims:

- Create clear speakers who are confident to convey their ideas; ask questions; justify their ideas with reasons; develop their vocabulary; negotiate; evaluate; and build on the ideas of others

- Develop active and fluent readers who read for a range of purposes including for pleasure; for supporting their own acquisition of knowledge; and for supporting their understanding of our world

- Produce effective and creative writers who demonstrate their skills across a range of different text types and who have the stamina to write at length with accurate punctuation, spelling and grammar
