At Staplehurst School we are working hard to provide an exciting and engaging literacy environment. We want each pupil to develop a love of reading, a love of communicating and to be confident, articulate writers from an early age.

Reading is very important to Staplehurst, and has a high status within the school.  We are aiming to transform our reading environment to foster a lifetime love of literature.   We teach phonics in Reception and KS1 using the ‘Read Write Inc’ scheme, and continue to use this to focus on spelling, as the children progress through the school. We have been developing our curriculum with a focus on high quality literature, including fiction, non-fiction and poetry. 

In KS2, the children are encouraged to write for a range of purposes and view literacy and language as a powerful means of self-expression.  Above all, we want to create readers and writers for life, with the skills to succeed at the next stage of their education.
