Subject Vision:  “The English language is a work in progress, have fun with it.” Jonathan Culver


The Exe Valley Federation believes that English is at the heart of all children’s learning. Reading, writing, speaking and listening enable children to communicate purposely and creatively.  English is central to children’s emotional, social and intellectual development and is crucial in underpinning life skills and all aspects of the curriculum.   We believe that reading is a life skill that every child should be entitled to. We want to inspire children through books, promoting a love of reading and empowering our children to become lifelong readers. We believe that teaching a high quality English curriculum will enable our children to communicate effectively throughout their lives, accessing information and sustaining personal and professional lives with fulfilment.
