Language and literacy are of personal, social and economic importance. Our ability to use language lies at the centre of the development and expression of our emotions, our thinking, our learning and our sense of personal identity. Language is itself a key aspect of our culture. Children and young people encounter, enjoy and learn from the diversity of language used in their homes, their communities, by the media and by their peers.
Literacy is fundamental to all areas of learning, as it unlocks access to the wider curriculum. Being literate increases opportunities for the individual in all aspects of life, lays the foundations for lifelong learning and work.
Competence and confidence in literacy, including competence in grammar, spelling and the spoken word, are essential for progress in all areas of the curriculum. As a school we continue to find opportunities to encourage pupils to explain their thinking, debate their ideas and read and write at a level which will help them to develop their language skills further.
At Suttons the literacy experiences and outcomes we promote help to develop critical and creative thinking as well as competence in listening and talking, reading, writing and personal, interpersonal and team-working skills which are so important in life and in the world of work.
"The creative approach to planning the curriculum ensures that pupils
experience imaginative and active opportunities for learning."
