Headfield CE Junior School


We hope this page offers you a wealth of information about writing at Headfield. If you require any further information or support with writing, please contact our subject leader Miss Allen in Year 6 or your child's class teacher.


Every child is a writer at Headfield. Our curriculum is tailored and refined to suit the needs of our learners and their potential, to ignite a passion for learning and writing is one of the many ways children can learn to express their ideas. 

At Headfield writing is a developmental and creative process. As with all other areas of learning, the Primary Framework for writing is taught through Cornerstones, our topic based resource.  All attempts at writing are valued and we know that all learners have the potential to be successful writers. Immersion in reading, talk and preparation for writing is essential to the writing development process.
