English & Languages

Our curriculum is balanced and broadly based. It consists of all the activities designed or encouraged in the school to develop the intellectual, personal, social and physical activities in the children.

At Busbridge Infant School, our English curriculum is designed with the intention to equip all children with a strong command of the spoken and written word. We aspire to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment and knowledge and ensure they develop the cultural capital needed to excel in the future. We provide an environment that is rich in language in order to immerse the children in the sounds and words that will form part of their written and spoken communication.

Our comprehensive English curriculum follows the aims and objectives of the 2014 National Curriculum, augmented by our wonderful library and a diverse range of wider activities and events.

All children from Year R to Year 2 benefit from a weekly French lesson.
