The Mary Towerton School

Inspiring all to reach their potential


We believe that a quality English curriculum should develop children’s love of reading, writing, spoken language and ensure they progress to the best of their ability. 
Our writing curriculum is purposeful, engaging and progressive within the mixed aged classes, where writing is based on talk as a starting point, especially in the early years. We acknowledge that writing enables powerful communication between author and reader and that being literate enables children to clarify their thoughts and make sense of their world and the learning within it. Our writers are aware of their audience and the purpose for writing and producing texts.
