  • Ensure that through their reading, pupils obtain a wide range of vocabulary that they can confidently use in their spoken language and written work.
  • Ensure that all pupils experience a wide range of genres and authors, encouraging them to acquire a love of reading.
  • Ensure that all pupils receive a well-balanced English curriculum.
