Literacy and communication are at the heart of our curriculum here at Mark Cross. We want to enthuse, encourage and support our pupils, initiating a love for the written and spoken word that lasts a lifetime. We want children to develop their reading and comprehension skills, write accurately and adaptively for a range of purposes and be confident and respectful when speaking and discussing their views. And we want a curriculum and learning environment which is accessible to all which provides challenge and support and introduces children to words, books and language that they can use in all subjects and far beyond their time here at Mark Cross.

We are a church aided school and our Christian values are at the forefront of everything we do. By encouraging our pupils to think deeply and compassionately, we will provide our children with the skills, knowledge and empathy they need to become successful, creative and curious learners. Ultimately, we want all of our pupils to enjoy and progress in all aspects of literacy, providing them with the knowledge and skills they need to reach their full potential in this subject.
