At Kings Road we aim to foster a love of English and an enjoyment of learning. At the core of our English learning is developing a love of vocabulary. At the start of their schooling at Kings Road, children begin their vocabulary journey by developing a love of listening to stories and reading for pleasure. Through progression and support, they go on to develop a bank of exciting words that they can begin to use in their writing. We challenge children of all abilities and strive for excellence. Children are encouraged to have a growth mind-set and to develop the skills of perseverance and resilience. At Kings Road primary school we strive to produce children who are fully literate and articulate. We have high expectations of all pupils and for pupils to have high expectations of themselves.
