At Oasis Academy Blakenhale the teaching of reading and writing has an essential, supportive and aspirational place within out bespoke curriculum.
We want all pupils at our school to enjoy reading and writing, to value their learning and to be proud of their achievements. We believe that English and communication are key life skills and through the English curriculum, we will help children develop the skills and knowledge that will enable them to communicate effectively and creatively through spoken and written language and equip them with the skills to become lifelong learners.
English is at the heart of all children’s learning. It enables children to communicate with others effectively for a variety of purposes and to examine their own and others’ experiences, feelings and ideas, giving these order and meaning.
