Curriculum – Literacy

At Holme Valley Primary School, we aim to develop the abilities of all children to communicate effectively in speech and writing, to listen with understanding, and to become enthusiastic and responsive readers.

We aim to set our pupils on a path to lifelong learning. We follow the principles set out in the 2014 National Curriculum. Literacy skills are taught on a daily basis in Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. These skills are then applied within cross-curricular learning opportunities.
