At Roxton CE Academy we passionately believe that all our pupils deserve the highest quality education in English. Through ‘quality first’ teaching, our children will learn to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others, and through their reading and listening, they will understand and evaluate the views of others.
We encourage a love of reading in particular, as it will give our pupils the chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Reading also enables pupils both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. By exposing children to a range of high quality texts, we aim to increase and improve their vocabulary beyond that which they hear or use in everyday speech.
