At Cranham Primary, we support children in developing their independent writing skills. We wish to build writers who are confident to take risks in their creative writing and who feel secure in their writing skills. Children need to understand how to write for a range of purposes, and how impactful powerful writing can be. We seek to create writers who take pride in their work, yet recognise that drafting and editing are part of the writing process. We encourage pupils to take inspiration from their community and the world around them, their experiences and from other literary sources. We help children develop the supporting skills such as spelling and phonics, grammar and punctuation throughout their time at Cranham school, following a progressive approach as they learn. Pupils' writing is always for a purpose and their progress is celebrated in a variety of ways. Pupils are provided with a rich range of writing opportunities across the curriculum.
