At Scapegoat Hill, We teach the National Curriculum, which provides the necessary skills for our pupils to become writers. Each child  is seen as a writer and we provide daily opportunities for children to have meaningful opportunities to write.

Regarding handwriting by the end of Year 2, children are taught to master a fluid, joined style of handwriting. Children in the EYFS also have daily taught handwriting lessons, which is part of our Bug Club Phonics’ Programme. A range of effective media (model texts, videos, fiction, non-fiction) is used to inspire and stimulate writing.

We have a range of scaffolds in the classrooms to support independent writing.

We regularly meet with other teachers across schools in the Colne Valley to moderate assessments, compare writing and learn from each other.
