At Newfield Primary School, we aim to promote the highest standards of language and literacy possible by equipping pupils with a strong spoken and written word. We aim to develop a love of language and communication by learning about literacy skills through the use of quality children’s text and books that interest, inspire and excite readers.


We want pupils to acquire a wide vocabulary, a solid understanding of grammar and be able to spell new words by effectively applying the spelling patterns and rules they learn throughout their time in primary school.


We believe that all pupils should be encouraged to take pride in the presentation of their writing, in part by developing a good, joined, handwriting style by the time they move to secondary school. We believe that all good writers refine and edit their writing over time, so we want children to develop independence in being able to identify their own writing.
