English is the foundation of all learning at St. Peter’s. Our aim is to deliver a high-quality education in English which teaches pupils to communicate confidently through reading, writing, and speaking and listening. Our mission is to instil a love of language and literature which becomes the bedrock of all that they go on to do both in their continued educational journeys and their everyday lives.


At St. Peter’s school, we strive for children to be ‘Primary Literate Pupils’.

We aim to help our pupils to:


  • Read fluently and often, with understanding, enjoyment and increasing stamina
  • Write clearly, accurately and effectively for a range of audiences and purposes
  • Develop an understanding of how language works through the study of grammar, punctuation and spelling conventions
  • Speak clearly, fluently and confidently and listen appropriately in a range of situations, including formal presentations and debates
