At Cossington CE Primary School  we follow the Talk for Writing approach to develop our children as effective and creative writers. The policy below details our overarching approach to Writing and details the intent for our children in this curriculum area, the way we implement a creative and effective Writing approach and the impact we intend this to have on pupils when they leave our school in Year 6. At the end of the policy, you can also view details about the texts we use to inspire children to write and a break down of planning showing what we teach and at what point in the year.
