ENGLISH

Bring Learning to Life through English

Our aim, through English education, is to support our students to develop their love of literature, communication and the craft of writing as well as to have a skillset that will support them in other subjects and within the wider world. Through a stimulating and exciting curriculum, we aim to not only develop literacy skills but also to promote confidence, emotional awareness, fluency and resilience through a tailored curriculum.

Our multi-sensory approach incorporates cross-curricular, cultural and community opportunities such as total communication environments, synthetic phonics, individual reading time, progressive and child centred literature for all abilities, ages and interests, sensory stories, immersive story telling events, visits with celebrated authors, book fairs, sensory mark making programme Squiggle While You Wiggle, colourful semantics, Speech and Language therapy integration and a personalised long-term plan which ensures progress and a wide range and depth of learning.

Our purpose is to ensure students at Landgate School embark into the wider world with nationally recognised qualifications, a voice to share who they are with the world and a love for literature, story-telling and communication.
