"The more that your read, the more things you will know.  The more that you learn, the more places you'll go."

Dr Seuss


At Milborne Port Primary School, we believe that a quality English curriculum should develop children's love of reading, writing and discussion.  We aim to inspire an appreciation of our rich and varied literary heritage and a habit of reading widely and often.  We recognise the importance of nurturing  a culture where children take pride in their writing, can write clearly and accurately and adapt their language and style for a range of contexts.  We want to inspire our pupils to be confident in the art of speaking and listening and to use discussion to further their learning.  

We believe that children need to develop a secure knowledge base in English which follows a clear pathway of progression as they advance through the primary curriculum.  We believe that a secure basis in literacy skills is crucial to a high quality education and will give our pupils the tools they need to participate fully as a member of society.
