At Milecastle, we believe that writing is central to learning and a key driver to the curriculum. We are determined that by the end of their primary education, all pupils are able to write fluently and with confidence in any subject. Pupils at Milecastle write with flare and confidence, apply what they have read to help give their writing a clear purpose and consider the audience for what they produce. They write grammatically accurate texts, applying spelling, grammar and punctuation skills they have been taught and use legible, cursive handwriting. We aim for our pupils to become resilient writers who, when writing regularly, are able to apply the skills they have been taught.
