‘Writing is an exploration. You start from nothing and learn as you go’

E.L. Doctorow

At All Saints, we intend to nurture and create confident writers who develop stamina for writing throughout their academic journey. We aim for all of our pupils to become independent writers, building on a range of skills as they work through each process of writing.

Throughout this journey, we ensure the pupils of All Saints are immersed in a range of genres and have a clear understanding of purpose. Our pupils will have a secure understanding of the purpose of a text type, the purpose and intended impact of writing skills / tools and the ability to carefully select vocabulary with careful attention to the desired effect on the readers’ thoughts and feelings. Our pupils are challenged and encouraged to take risks and view mistakes as another part of the learning process.

Our pupils will always set high expectations for themselves and they take pride in all aspects of learning and in everything they produce. Click on the tabs on the left to find out more information about the teaching of writing.
