The English Curriculum is organised into three interrelated strands. Together, these strands focus on developing our students’ knowledge, understanding and skills in listening, reading, viewing, speaking and listening. A consistent approach to literacy learning provides direction in planning for improvement.

The three strands are:

  • Language – knowing about the English language
  • Literature – understanding, appreciating, responding to, analysing and creating literature.
  • Literacy – expanding the repertoire of English

Our teachers design learning experiences which support students in developing functional and critical literacy skills. Teachers are supported by a Literacy Leader, who works with teachers one day per week.
