Our Aims and Objectives
The English Department at The Knights Templar School is characterised by its strong sense of collaboration and its shared enthusiasm for language and literature in all of its forms. The school experience of the student lies at the heart of the Department’s vision.
The aim is to give every child a positive experience both inside and outside the classroom; to raise attainment, improve skills in communication, promote a sense of self worth and belonging and foster a lifelong love of learning.
We endeavour to ensure that pupils enjoy their English lessons and have created a curriculum which offers a rich and diverse range of learning experiences to both engage our students and enable them to achieve their full potential.
Our intention is to make the study of English a rewarding, enjoyable and positive experience for all, regardless of ability; we recognise that children learn in different ways and aim to provide varied and stimulating learning activities for all our students.
