South View Primary

Writing Intent

At South View Community Primary School, we believe learning to write is one of the most important things that a child will do at primary school. Almost all other areas of the curriculum are assessed through writing, so strong writing is one of the keys to academic success. Therefore, we will endeavour to deliver a rich and varied Writing Curriculum, in line with national expectations.


We want every child to see themselves as a successful writer. At the end of Year 6, every child will leave South View being able to write with confidence and accuracy for a variety of purposes and audiences whilst developing their own individual flair. Confidently, children will naturally draw on what they have read as models for their own writing. They will acquire a wide vocabulary through their love of reading and be able to select and use appropriate word choice, sentence structure and text in their writing for effect, understanding how their word choices impact their audience. They will be able to apply spelling patterns correctly using a neat, cursive, joined handwriting style. We believe that all good writers refine and edit their writing over time, so we want children to develop independence in being able to identify their own areas for improvement in all pieces of writing, editing their work effectively during and after the writing process to produce their best work.  Additionally, we want children to apply the skill independently across a range of different pieces, in different curriculum areas.
