Language and communication skills are essential for all our pupils and we recognise that the skills developed in English promote learning across the curriculum. We want our pupils to be able to express themselves creatively and imaginatively, and to communicate effectively both verbally and non-verbally with others in a range of social situations. We teach pupils the skills they need to communicate in ways relevant to their individual needs, through their most preferred method of communication, developing their skills in speaking and listening, reading and writing. They have English lessons following the National Curriculum or follow cross-curricular themes which have been developed to meet the individual learning styles of pupils with more complex learning difficulties. Phonics and Colourful Semantics forms an important part of the English curriculum.
