English has a pre-eminent place in education and in society. At Grange Valley we teach our children to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others, and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them.
Through reading in particular, children have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature plays a key role in such development. Reading also enables our children to both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know.
We believe all the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society!
