English is one of the most important life-skills that we can teach the children at Alma Park and is often the ‘keystone’ for other areas of learning. It develops children’s ability to communicate in spoken and written form.

Through developing their knowledge, skills and understanding in English, children learn to appreciate that communication in all forms contributes to their wider understanding of the world in which they live. Our English curriculum provides breadth and balance, is relevant and engaging and is differentiated to match needs and abilities.
