No story lives unless somebody wants to listen.”

J.K Rowling.

At the pinnacle and heart of The Dean Trust Curriculum lies English. Its fundamental aim is to develop, promote and embed a love of Reading using a vast array of vocabulary-rich, quality texts. These will provide our children with challenge, but will ultimately inspire and excite them – giving our learners a variety of opportunities to immerse and explore language through the love of books. Heavily linked to the passion installed in children through books is our creative and ambitious writing scheme. Being successful in English means that the children can transfer the skills readily across all core and foundation subjects with creativity and flare. The process is schematic and focuses on the grammatical aspects of the learnt genres through to editing and then presenting a final piece of writing that has incorporated all the genre specific vocabulary and terminology so it resonates in the children’s long-term memory.
