At Summercourt Academy we recognise the importance of the English language in preparing children to be confident in all aspects of their lives. We believe that improved performance in reading, writing and spoken language will enable our pupils to deal more successfully with other curriculum subjects, while enriching their lives beyond school. At Summercourt Academy we encourage all children to become independent learners and be confident in all strands of learning.
Our approach to teaching English incorporates oracy, drama, real contexts and high-quality texts, developing children’s vocabulary, language, reading and writing skills.
We want all children to leave Summercourt Academy with a life-long reading habit and a love of books because reading will improve their vocabulary, inspire them creatively and improve their ability to write well.
