We aim to provide our learners with a high-quality English education that equips them with key skills and understanding. All learners are given opportunities to develop their spoken language, reading, writing and vocabulary as integral aspects of the teaching of literacy and English.
English is both a subject and the medium for teaching. For learners, understanding the language provides access to the whole curriculum. Fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all subjects.
Literacy and English are categorised by fundamental skills into three key areas:
- Spoken language
- Reading and Writing
- Vocabulary development
