Park High School

Every child at Park High School will be taught to read with fluency and understanding. All children will develop the skills and confidence to read increasingly challenging texts independently in order to support them in all aspects of their curriculum. Vocabulary is explicitly and systematically taught to enable students to understand the relationships between words and nuances of meaning. A wide vocabulary will empower students to articulate their thoughts, emotions and ideas effectively as well as enabling them to engage more deeply with the written and spoken word. 

The KS3 reading and literacy curriculum builds on the knowledge and skills developed in KS2 to allow students to become increasingly sophisticated communicators with a comprehensive grasp of grammatical terminology and the ability to apply this knowledge to their own writing. 

“Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually… All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society; pupils, therefore, who do not learn to speak, read and write fluently and confidently are effectively disenfranchised.”
