Rationale & Aims of the English Curriculum


At Prince Rock, we aim to provide an outstanding English curriculum for our school community. 


“Good literacy skills—the ability to read, write, and communicate confidently—are foundational to learning. They unlock access to all areas of the curriculum, enabling students to discover and pursue their individual talents and interests.” Becky Francis, EEF


“Oracy education does not only mean teaching children ways to talk that will help them to do well in future job interviews or work settings. It means teaching children the spoken language skills that will enable them to make the most of the education they are offered in their classrooms every day…. Good, inclusive oracy education provides children with the speaking and listening skills they need to think and learn.” Oracy Cambridge 2019


“It is essential that, by the end of their primary education, all pupils are able to read fluently, and with confidence, in any subject in their forthcoming secondary education.”  The Reading Framework, DFE, 2023
