The National Curriculum says …
English has a pre-emient place in education and in society. A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and thorugh their reading and listening, others can communicate with them. Through reading in particular, pupils have a chance to develop culturally, emotionally, intelectually, 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. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society; pupils, therefore, who do not learn to speak, read and write fluently and confidently are effectively disenfranchised.
