The English Faculty at Cardinal Newman Catholic School aim to foster a love of language and literature and enable students to become reflective readers, skilled writers, confident speakers andcreative thinkers. We work as a team to plan our curriculum so that it is stimulating and enjoyable, with a variety of activities that enable students to investigate texts and explore the ways in which meanings are communicated. The focus on the development of students' literacy is implemented through student and teacher assessment; these assessments are used to provide the students with clear targets that will allow them to progress in all aspects of their learning. We encourage students to become independent readers and to read for pleasure.
