Competency in reading, writing, speaking and listening is encouraged and developed throughout the curriculum in order to enable children to communicate confidently and effectively. English is taught daily, both as a discrete subject and through other subjects as part of the International Primary Curriculum (see below)


Read Write Inc. is a systematic phonics scheme which is introduced from Nursery through to Year 2. Read Write Inc. supports the Letters and Sounds document which is broken into Phases which move through very early listening and responding to sounds at Phase 1 to more complex sounds written and sounded out at to an approximate reading age of 7-8 years at Phase 6. The Read Write Inc. scheme mirrors the Phases.

Read Write Inc. is adapted to suit the needs of the children and taught in smaller groups up to Year 2 by both teachers and support staff.  Children are grouped into very similar abilities in reading. Where children are taught in small groups teachers have the overview of all the children in their class and assess the delivery of the sessions. All staff receive regular updates and in house training to support the programme. Children move through the scheme as their ability and confidence develops.
