The learning and teaching of English in Key Stage 1 and Foundation Stage (Pre-Reception to Year 2) is led by Rebecca Parfitt.


The progressive objectives of the Primary Framework are grouped into the following key areas: sentence structure; punctuation; text structure and organization; creating and shaping tests; word structure and spelling; presentation and handwriting. These areas are taught in discrete lessons and reinforced through cross-curricular links.
