English Curriculum Overviews
At St Michael with St John, the majority of our pupils have English as an additional language and therefore, the acquisition of language is given high priority. Spoken language, reading and writing are integral to the whole language experience and we provide opportunities for children to develop these essential skills in English lessons and across the curriculum.
Our English curriculum is designed to meet the needs of all pupils from our diverse heritage groups, preparing them as fully as possible for their next phase of education. Our mission statement underpins all aspects of the school’s work, informs school development and shapes the school environment and our curriculum. It is firmly based upon on our belief that, ‘with God all things are possible’.
