English encompasses:

  • speaking and listening
  • reading
  • writing
  • spelling, grammar and punctuation
  • handwriting


At Banks Road we want our pupils to be confident and competent in all of these areas so that they can:

  • communicate effectively with others
  • express themselves creatively
  • appreciate a wide range of literature
  • develop critical awareness
  • express preferences based on informed judgements


“Three Rules for Literary Success:

  1. Read a lot.
  2. Write a lot.
  3. Read a lot more, write a lot more.”

Our free communication app allows us to provide parents with instant access to our important messages and up to date school information.
