The teaching of English, with a focus on spoken language, reading and writing is integral to the Iqra curriculum and permeates all aspects of learning. The development of communication skills is the foundation for the growth of nurturing effective and enjoyable relationships between students, families, carers, staff and other partners in the school and the community. More than this, we believe these skills equip our children for lifelong success and confidence.

Literature, drama and poetry provide learning experiences that support children’s development cognitively, emotionally, socially and culturally. We develop our pupils’ creativity and competence with writing, placing a strong emphasis on editing, redrafting and producing a final piece and we have a strong track record in terms of SATs outcomes.
