At Godolphin Primary we aim for children to be independent writers. We use real experiences to inspire and develop pupil’s writing skills as often as we can. We encourage them to write clearly and with confidence in any given genre. We teach them to use punctuation and grammar accurately, to be able to proofread their own work and make amendments and improvements. We place value on the development of correct letter formation and neatly presented handwriting.

We give children a wide range of opportunities in which to develop their writing skills.

Through our English curriculum, we aim to nurture in the children a love of literature and language, and the confidence to continue reading and writing throughout their lives.
