English at Northway is about equipping pupils with the knowledge, skills and understanding to be able to communicate effectively in the world. The Curriculum has been designed to inspire children to read a wealth of high quality texts and be inspired to write for real purpose.

At Northway, we use a quality text approach to the teaching of English.

  • The Quality Text Approach approach aims to engage and motivate children in their literacy learning.
  • The Quality Text Approach enables children to deepen their understanding of texts and provides a meaningful context for writing.
  • The Quality Texts Approach brings together the three areas of English: GPS, Reading and Writing and provides an invaluable context for children to build their knowledge and cultural capital.
