At Mountjoy our English Curriculum aims to equip our pupils with the necessary skills to be literate in the modern world. In Key Stage 1 we follow the synthetic phonics method.

We want

  • To enable all our pupils to be effective communicators.
  • To inspire a love of books and reading and achieve competency at their own skill level.
  • To develop written skills in order to function within society including the use of modern technologies.

English is delivered through a variety of teaching approaches to ensure that lessons are fun and engaging and that all strands of the subject are covered at every level of learning. We also work closely with SALT services to maximise each child’s communication potential.
