Understanding English, communication and languages

Importance

English, communication and languages lie at the heart of our capacity to imagine, think and create and make a crucial contribution to children's development as successful learners. Their developing use of language underpins children's achievement across the curriculum and lays the foundations for active involvement in cultural life, society, work and lifelong learning.
