The James Dixon English Writing Curriculum aims to be an inclusive, purposeful and contextualised learning journey allowing the children to make links between writing and the world they live in.


At James Dixon we aim to ensure that all pupils:

  • Have a positive attitude towards writing, finding the process fun and exciting.

  • Develop a broad and ambitious vocabulary and use this vocabulary confidently in conversation.

  • Have the confidence to write with flair, clarity and imagination for a range of audiences and purposes.

  • Have a solid understanding of spelling, punctuation and grammar.

  • Are able to edit, develop and draft their own writing with the understanding this will make them do their very best.
