Together we enjoy, create & achieve


English Rationale:


English is a fundamental life skill that enables children to listen, speak, read and write for a wide range of purposes. Caversham Park Primary School provides an environment where children are encouraged to express themselves clearly and creatively in both spoken and written form. In addition, pupils at Caversham Park Primary School are exposed to wide range of literature in order to ensure that they become enthusiastic, responsible and confident readers and writers.
