Market Drayton Infant & Nursery School

‘An excellent, happy school, where we enjoy learning’


Literacy and communication are key life skills. Through the English curriculum, we will help children to develop the skills and knowledge that will enable them to communicate effectively and creatively through both spoken and written language. We want children to enjoy and appreciate literature and its rich variety. 

The English curriculum is delivered using the National Curriculum English Document (2014) in Key Stage One. The Early Learning Goals are followed to ensure continuity and progression from the Early Years Foundation Stage through to the National Curriculum. 

In the new English Curriculum, grammar, punctuation and spelling now play a role in the children's writing. They are given focused spelling and grammar tasks to practise. These are then integrated within their writing.
