At Stanton-in-Peak we understand the important place of English both 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 reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Literature, especially, plays a key role in such development. Reading 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. The effective teaching of English is therefore, highly important.
"Words satisfy the soul as food satisfies the stomach: the right words on a persons lips bring satisfaction." Proverbs 18:20
