Intent Statement

The Nether Edge writing curriculum is inspiring, thought-provoking and knowledge rich. Through a strong and relevant subject knowledge, children develop a flair and lifelong passion for writing that begins in early years and which will empower them as future citizens.

Our children acquire the essential grammar skills, including spelling, that enables them to write for different purposes and in a variety of styles and contexts. They become proud and confident writers as a result of ambitious use of vocabulary, exceptional presentation and imaginative thinking.

  • Skilled- have a good knowledge of grammar and can apply this to their writing; use ambitious vocabulary correctly.
  • Confident- have knowledge secure in their long-term memory.
