An Academy of the Great Learners Trust

English Curriculum Intent

At Elmhurst, we recognise that writing is an essential life skill to be enjoyed and used to express ourselves and communicate with the world around us.  We aim to unlock our pupils' writing potential through engaging lessons and high quality, age-appropriate model texts. ​


Through imitating, innovating and invention using the Talk for Writing process we provide our pupils with the tools they need to become creative authors.  Continuously developing their writing knowledge and instilling a love of reading and writing.


We aim to prepare children to be successful communicators and writers so they can achieve their aspirations throughout their education and beyond.
