In March 2013 Ofsted gave us key aspects of writing to 'further improve' our practice. In the
inspection of June 2017, Ofsted said:
At the previous inspection, you were asked to increase pupils’ progress in writing. You have developed a range of strategies to ensure teachers have high expectations for the quality of pupils’ writing across all subjects. As a result, work in pupils’ books, and on display around the school, is of a high standard. Teachers provide pupils with opportunities to write for a range of different purposes. Just a few of the many examples seen during the inspection include: pupils developing their spiritual, moral, social and cultural understanding by writing their own reflections from assemblies and, in history, pupils writing about life in Britain before the Romans invaded. Pupils’ handwriting is of a high standard and they write in a legible style.
