At Staplehurst School we provide an exciting and engaging literacy curriculum. We want each pupil to develop a life-long passion for reading, a love of communicating and to be motivated, expressive writers from an early age. We have developed our curriculum with a focus on high quality literature, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. 

Reading is at the heart of Staplehurst School. We teach phonics in Reception and KS1 using the ‘Read Write Inc’ scheme, and then build on this knowledge when teaching spelling, as the children progress through the school.

In KS1 and KS2, the children are encouraged to write for a range of purposes and view literacy and language as a powerful means of self-expression. Teachers use a modelled approach to support children in understanding how to shape and build a piece of writing. Above all, we want to create readers and writers for life, with the skills to succeed at the next stage of their education.
