Building the confidence and resilience to flourish

Writing is a developmental process; pupils require frequent opportunities to write for a range of purposes and to experiment with different forms. We aim for Hever pupils to become confident, independent writers who are reflective about the process, content and accuracy of their written communication.



We have a systematic approach, we revisit key learning and build upon it in all areas from phonics, through to grammar and spelling.



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



Reception: Non-cursive print (following Little Wandle: Letters and Sounds revised).

Year One: Refining non-cursive print. 

Year Two: Continuous cursive beginners.

Key Stage 2: Continuous cursive refiners, legibility, fluency and speed.



Pupils will make good progress from their own personal starting points. By the end of Year Six they will be able to write clearly and accurately and adapt their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences. Our pupils will acquire a wide vocabulary and have a strong command of the written word. Most importantly, they will develop a love of writing and be well equipped for the rest of their education.
