English: Writing

Writing is important in everyday life. It is integral to all aspects of life and, with this in mind; we endeavour to ensure that children develop a healthy and enthusiastic attitude towards writing that will stay with them. Writing enables pupils to communicate with people around the world. Building on experiences - it encourages thinking and communication skills to grow.

A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to write fluently so they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others. All the skills of language are essential to participating fully as a member of society. The overarching aim for English in the national curriculum is to promote high standards of language and literacy by equipping pupils with a strong command of the spoken and written language, ensuring they can write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences. We aspire that every child is able to write fluently and competently for a range of purposes, possessing the skills for life ahead.
