Ofsted Reports


We follow a Mastery approach to English through the Literacy Company programmes ‘Pathways to Write' and 'Pathways to Read.' Units of work are delivered using high quality texts and children in all year groups are given varied opportunities for reading and writing. Skills are built up through repetition within the units, and children apply these skills in the activities provided.  Many opportunities for widening children’s vocabulary are given through the Literacy Company's approach and this builds on the extensive work we do in school to provide our children with a rich and varied vocabulary.  

You will find the end of year expectations for writing, reading and spoken language for each of our year groups in the attached documents. For further detail on the skills that your children are learning on a termly basis, please contact your class teacher.

We aim to develop children’s confidence for writing from the earliest age. Our approach focuses on “talk for writing” strategies, which can be summarised as:

“If they can’t say it, they can’t write it.”

The children are taught about different genres, spelling, punctuation and grammar. They are given opportunities to write across the curriculum and every child’s writing is displayed in the classroom.
