English

 

The English curriculum intent is to:

Provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all students at WCHS which builds on their prior knowledge and literacy skills, providing access to a range of literature and non-fiction

Engage students in learning which is enjoyable, stimulating and relevant  to students now and for the future

The curriculum is designed to build on skills in a progressive way as well as having regular revisiting of the broader range of skills required for literary responses. 

Enable students to develop knowledge, understand concepts and acquire skills, and be able to choose and apply these in relevant situations; and to instil an aspirational mindset

Support students’ spiritual, moral, social and cultural development to enable them to become responsible, respectful members of the local and wider community

Promote a positive attitude towards learning in English; pride in their own progress and achievement; and a strong work ethic, through providing a curriculum which offers opportunity to celebrate and share success: valuing attainment, progress and effort equally

Ensure equal access to learning, with high expectations for every student and appropriate levels of challenge and support

Ensure that as many students as possible leave our school with a strong result in English that allows them to progress in their chosen career path. 

Develop students’ independent learning skills and resilience, as well as their communication skills, to equip them for post-16 education, further/higher education and employment and to become lifelong learners
