English Subject Intent


At Flamstead, we aim to deliver a high-quality education in English that will teach pupils to speak, read and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others.


English is both a subject in its own right and the medium for teaching across all subjects; for pupils, understanding the language provides access to the whole curriculum. We believe that fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all subjects. Our teachers develop pupils’ spoken language, reading, writing and vocabulary as integral aspects of the curriculum.

Through our English curriculum, we promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written word, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
