Writing at Northern Primary School



Our intent

Our vision at Northern Primary School is to give every child the opportunity to become a writer and be excited by writing. We believe that high expectations and encouragement will create a confident and capable writer. We want our children to write clearly, accurately and coherently, adapting their language and style in and for a range of contexts, purposes and audiences. We believe it is important for all children to be exposed to quality writing texts and given the time to reflect upon their writing and the writing of others. Children at Northern will develop the tools they need to become a proficient writer and develop a genuine love of Writing.


At Northern Primary School, we encourage children to take pride in their writing, whilst nurturing creativity and building confidence. 


As a school, we develop writing through four purposes. These are:

  • writing to entertain;
  • writing to inform;
  • writing to persuade;
  • writing to discuss.


As a school we are lucky to work with Lancashire Literacy Consultants. We follow the Learning and Progression Steps (LAPS) in Writing for children's targets.
