"If you want to change the world, pick up your pen and write."

- Martin Luther

Our pupils are full of creativity and amazing knowledge. We prioritise writing because this is the medium by which they can most accurately record and communicate their incredible ideas. We know there is a strong correlation between wellbeing, self-esteem and writing, and we do all we can to equip our children with the tools to become confident, fluent and inspiring writers.

Curriculum Design

Please see below for information about the design, rationale and priorities of our Writing curriculum.

Progression Framework

The National Curriculum outlines in detail what pupils should learn at each stage of their Writing journey. Using the principles outlined in our Curriculum Design document above we inspire pupils with their writing across the areas of transcription, handwriting, composition and vocabulary, grammar and punctuation.

After Little Wandle Phonics (which supports both Reading and Writing), we build from this by using a range of spelling tools, especially 'Spelling Shed' - a learning programme which equips pupils with the statutory content of the National Curriculum and delves into morphology, etymology and language construction.
