English Intent Statement


At Our Lady of Lourdes School we believe that a high quality education in English goes a long way in enabling our children to ‘live life to the full’. An effective English curriculum, enables our children to speak, read and write fluently so that a two way process of communication can take place. It allows children to express themselves to others and to gain an understanding of the wonderful world in which we live.

At Our Lady of Lourdes School, we place a strong emphasis on reading, particularly reading for pleasure. However, we want our children to understand that reading can help them to acquire knowledge and build upon the things they already know. Reading can also help our children to understand their own identity, develop empathy with others and it provides a link to the wider community.

We believe that all the skills of taught within the English curriculum are essential to participating fully as a member of society.
