Literate and Numerate

At Redwood, we are committed to ensuring that all children, regardless of their starting point, are confident numerate and literate life-long learners. Our creative curriculum motivates, inspires and encourages our children to build upon their prior learning and develop the transferable English and mathematical knowledge and skills required to ensure that they are thoroughly prepared for the next stage of their journey through and beyond Redwood.


Our English curriculum, starting in Early Years with the use of the Read, Write, Inc. phonics programme, encourages children to develop a love of reading alongside the skills of inferring, predicting, explaining, retrieving and summarising through the use of quality texts. We support them in writing and speaking articulately, using a wide range of vocabulary to express their thoughts and ideas clearly.


Our Mathematics curriculum supports all children in developing a sound and secure understanding of mathematical concepts, equipping them with the skills of fluency, calculation, mathematical reasoning and problem solving.
