Improve primary writing with robust planning, assessment and moderation across the school. This practical Toolkit supports subject leaders and teachers to set clear expectations for primary writing in each year group and to effectively monitor and evaluate progress.
Are you a teacher or English subject lead looking to reboot writing in your class or school?
This practical toolkit will help you set out your intent, implementation and impact for writing, and support you with planning, assessment and moderation across the school. You’ll be able to tailor teaching to children’s needs and your school curriculum, bringing in your own creative ideas and texts, around which to structure planning.
This suite of documents provide structure, consistency and support for pitch and progression so children’s writing skills are systematically developed across the school.
The Planning platforms are the starting place for year group teachers to plan for the teaching of writing. Teacher Assessment Frameworks are the finishing point for assessing attainment. The Progression Charts are supporting documents which group the objectives within the Planning Platforms so that progression across year groups and key stages can be seen for every objective. Bridging Documents form a further supporting document for each year group showing how the statements within the Planning Platform lead towards each ‘pupil can’ statement in the Teacher Assessment Framework. The Writing Toolkits also contain annotated portfolios of children’s work to support effective moderation, indicating features that exemplify pupils who are working at the expected standard for the year group.
Used together, these resources result in an improved writing curriculum and clear expectations for primary writing in each year group.
