Since returning to MSS last week, the talk amongst staff and students has been overwhelmingly about how we can improve the quality of every students writing. This is an area identified within our Explicit Improvement Agenda for 2018.
Significant work has been undertaken by class teachers to understand where students are in their writing journey. This includes the skills demonstrated by students in their writing as well as the skills or next steps required by students to improve the quality of their writing. Teachers, working alongside our writing support team have been mapping individual student progress against our school's 10 star writing model. Students are working with their teachers to develop writing goals as their individual focus areas to improve on.
We will keep you updated on our writing improvement journey throughout the term.
