It is planned with an impressive rich literature spine comprising of ambitious texts that inspire and challenge pupils, with the aim to raise aspiration for all pupils.
It is systematically mapped to enable children to experience breadth and depth of social, moral and ethical dimension as well as a wide range of authors and protagonists.
