At South Camberley Primary School learning English is our highest priority. We believe that learning to read, write and communicate effectively underpins all learning. A high-quality education in English will teach 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 a rich diet of literature, children have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Reading also enables children both to acquire knowledge and to build on what they already know. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society.
