English at Hever
Subject Lead: Miss L Pugh
English language is the foundation for almost all learning which takes place in school, and communication within and beyond school. The National Curriculum (2014) clearly states that teaching the English language is an essential, if not the most essential role of a primary school. At Hever School, we recognise that without effective communication little achievement can be made. We therefore have a duty to ensure that English teaching is a priority; is necessarily cross-curricular and a constant through-out school life.
