At Blue Coat School, we believe that the English language is fundamental to access all curriculum areas for our setting and beyond. Lifelong learning is our vision, through quality first teaching; excellent subject knowledge and high expectation of all pupils. We aim for all pupils to foster a love of reading and writing, through a broad and balanced curriculum.

Reading for pleasure is what we strive for and at The Blue Coat School, we still have a dedicated library session built in to our weekly learning. Rich texts are studied to understand how to develop a writer’s voice. Language choices are examined through texts and passages; learning about grammatical structures and punctuation.

Writing outcomes are celebrated where pupils understand the purpose and their intended audience. Imaginative narrative must engage the reader; present an individual voice and embrace stylistic devices.

At Blue Coat we will provide the tools to access the English curriculum. Our teachers will support your children with the best possible chance, not only to pass examinations but also for an enriched and productive adult life.
