At Chalfont St. Giles Village School we believe English has a dominant place in education and in society. A high-quality education in English will teach pupils 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 English, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. It also enables pupils 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 therefore we place high value on the quality first teaching we deliver as part of our English curriculum.
