Please see the attached handy guide for those of you wishing to brush up on your grammar and support your children with the challenging new expectations!

 By the time children leave our school the vast majority achieve well above national expectations in the spelling, grammar and punctuation test. We achieve this high standard by teaching spelling, punctuation and grammar on a daily basis, either through structured discrete lessons, or through high quality texts. We ensure that high expectations in these essential, basic skills are maintained in all aspects of writing across the curriculum, not just in English lessons.
