Paget Primary School, Paget Road, Pype Hayes, Birmingham

English

At Paget Primary School, it is our intention to provide pupils with a language rich education in English which will teach pupils how to speak, read and write fluently, so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions effectively.

Our intention is to build quality books at the heart of our curriculum in order to encourage pupils to read widely to develop a deeper understanding of themselves and of the world around them; establish an appreciation and love of reading; gain knowledge of the wider curriculum; develop good fluency and comprehension skills and become great writers.

Writing is taught through a range of exciting stimuli which include: books, film clips, visitors in school, real life experiences and the curriculum.

Embedded within our English curriculum is also the teaching of spelling, grammar, punctuation, handwriting and vocabulary, in order to equip the pupils with the skills to become confident and fluent writers. Teachers model the writing process and demonstrate the high expectations of writing.

Reading

Our aim is to deliver an exciting, innovative English curriculum which enables and empowers children’s reading, written and oral communication and creativity. This will result in a love of learning with key skills for life beyond Paget.

Phonics

At Paget Primary School we have chosen to use Read Write Inc. phonics scheme within Reception Year 1 and Year2 to improve our phonic data and to bring it in line with National Phonics Checks outcomes. We feel that this will impact the Reading and Writing age expected scores for Year 1 and 2, with a focus on developing our greater depth children and ensuring our SEN children are making significant progress throughout their life at Paget.

Through our phonics and reading teaching and learning, within the whole school, we aim to ensure that children have a love of reading and have access to a wide variety of good quality texts (fiction and non-fiction) to develop their vocabulary choices, retelling of a range of stories and foster a good knowledge.

We also aim to ensure that our children are the 'best they can be' by removing spelling or handwriting barriers.
