- Our School
The ability to read and write well is a vital skill for all children, paving the way for an enjoyable and successful school experience. English, therefore is both a subject in its own right and used as the medium for teaching. Fluency in the English language is an essential foundation for success in all the subjects taught at our school.
At St. Joseph’s every teacher will work with pupils in their care to develop and practise many of the skills that they need for reading and writing from Year 5 onwards; building on the skills they have acquired already at home, and in their first schools. Through our teaching we will develop pupils’ spoken language, reading, writing and vocabulary as integral aspects of the teaching of every subject.
