St Mark’s Primary School

"'Let Your Light Shine' Matthew 5:16"


Writing Vision:

Our vision for English at St Mark’s is to foster in children a real love of language and an understanding of how becoming literate can be the key to unlocking learning in all aspects of life. We seek to inspire and excite children by providing a rich, creative English curriculum with a wide variety of cross-curricular opportunities. By the end of KS2 we want our children to have developed a love of writing and to be able to express their thoughts and ideas clearly and creatively through the written word. Through high-quality teaching of writing, we intend for our children to:


  • Enjoy writing for a range of purposes, recognising and using the features of different genres of writing, both fiction and non-fiction and apply these skills in writing across the curriculum.
  • Write fluently, confidently and with understanding, adapting their language and style for a range of meaningful contexts, purposes and audiences.
  • Use rich and adventurous vocabulary, and where appropriate, technical vocabulary.
  • Have a solid understanding of grammar and ability to use it for effect.


Enjoyment of writing is fostered through the use of drama and story, with an emphasis on oracy to support high standards in writing. We intend for our children to become writers who can confidently re-read, edit and improve their own writing. At St Mark’s, we set high expectations for presentation and handwriting, so all our children to take pride in their work.
