About our school

English

At Castleton, Lealholm and Glaisdale, English is at the heart of our curriculum and prepares children for life-long learning in a modern society.

We provide an education that ensures that children can communicate ideas and emotions effectively and this is achieved through stimulating and language rich environments. This enables children to speak, read and write fluently and we are passionate about closing the language gap so that literacy skills do not become a barrier to any child. 

Here at Castleton, Lealholm and Glaisdale, our curriculum is driven by high- quality texts to enhance reading and writing across all subjects and year groups. We aim to develop a love of reading for all pupils; encouraging them to access different genres and authors so that they have the skills, knowledge and ownership required to become readers for life. Opportunities to meet authors has inspired and motivated our pupils.  

During their time at school, pupils will encounter a range of literacy experiences which enable them to express themselves and develop skills and confidence. We are particularly proud of our whole school productions that promote creativity, language and drama. The experiences which children have, both in the classroom and outdoors, stimulates writing opportunities for different purposes and audiences.
