English Policy



At Highburton First School we encourage children to become independent writers using a range of strategies. We use high quality text to engage children and encourage them to foster a love for reading and writing. 

Class Author

Each class within school has a class author. This is to encourage children to make informed choices when choosing a book to read. This ensures that the children in school have been exposed to at least 6 different authors within their time in school.
