Communication, Language & Literacy

This domain is led by Mrs. Kim Cinicola (KS1 CLL), Mr. Daniel Seviour (KS2 CLL) and Miss. Maaike Bonny (French)


The CLL Domain encompasses the following traditional subjects:

  • English
    • Spoken Language
    • Reading
    • Writing
  • Modern Foreign Languages (French)


We believe that Communication, Language and Literacy (CLL) is a key skill, which is essential for all aspects of everyday life, including independent learning and the world of work. Our school promotes a high-quality CLL education, which teaches 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, our 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. Furthermore, we recognise all the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society.


It is the our intent that teaching and learning enables our pupils to express and effectively communicate their thoughts, emotions and ideas fluently and accurately; helping to prepare them to lead an enriching and fulfilling life. We aim to develop pupils’ cultural, emotional and intellectual awareness so they can fully participate in the world around them. The teaching and learning of CLL skills is given a high priority within our school, including across the wider-curriculum. Therefore, we endeavour to promote high standards of Communication, Language and Literacy by equipping our pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written language, and to develop their love of literature through widespread reading for enjoyment.
