Our Writing curriculum, aims to inspire creativity, develop fluency, and foster a lifelong love for writing in our pupils. We believe that Writing is a fundamental skill that empowers our pupils to express themselves, communicate effectively, and engage critically and imaginatively with a range of texts, genres, and contexts, enabling them to navigate, understand, and contribute to the diverse and evolving world around them.

We plan meaningful units of work for English writing according to the 2014 National Curriculum, which support pupils to: 

  • develop the stamina and skills to write at length; 
  • become fluent in key transcriptional components and grammar so they become increasingly
    accurate writers;
  • write for a range of purposes, including a range of story genres, reports, instructions and recounts; 
  • write to support the consolidation of what they have heard or read.  

A broad range of exciting and high quality texts are used to support these sequences of learning, according to the whole school long term plan for writing.
