Burraton Community Primary School

Aspiration to Achieve,
Determination to Succeed



English is an umbrella term for Oracy, phonics, reading and writing.  At Burraton CP School, we believe that the acquisition of language through the provision of high-quality experiences and stimuli related to the above are a fundamental driver of positive change.

Oracy - Through being taught to speak articulately, children are empowered to communicate their ideas, feelings and emotions.  Through being taught to be a good listener and reader, others can communicate their ideas, feelings and emotions to them. 

Reading - The ability to read fluently and comprehend what has been read enables children to develop a greater knowledge and understanding of the world, allowing children to develop both culturally and socially.

Writing - The ability to write provides children with another tool with which to communicate their knowledge, understanding and thoughts with others in a variety of different ways.

All of these skills are vital life skills that will support children’s success in becoming life-long learners as well as equipping them for the world beyond Burraton CP School.
