English at Boughton Heath Academy

Here at Boughton Heath Academy we understand the importance of the written word and its role in inspiring children and unlocking their potentail across the curriculum. Children who love the written word unlock a whole world of inspiration which can then translate into progression, achievement and passion in other areas. 

We teach English following the Pathways Literacy units of work for both reading and writing. These units of work are written by experienced English consultants and our teachers adapt these for bespoke delivery to their classes based on each year group's individual needs.  

The units of work ensure children cover the National Curriuculum for English in its entirety for both reading and writing; and the progressive structure of the programme ensures children's learning develops through the introduction of new skills being taught and regular opportunities to revisit and develop existing skills.
