Writing Purpose Overview:


At The Greetland Academy we use comparative judgement to assess writing across the school. As a research school we ensure that research is at the heart of everything that we do and this process has been shown to be as reliable as double marking writing whilst also being much quicker. Comparative judgement is a process where judges compare two responses and decide which is better. Following repeated comparisons, the resulting data is statistically modelled and responses placed on a scale of relative quality. The results from the process are used to support our own teacher judgements. 

Writing Manifesto

Our school has contributed to and adopted the Elland Cluster Manifesto for writing that outlines the prerequisites of successful writing and the practices which enable pupils to become fluent, well-accomplished writers. Please find a copy of the most recent draft of the manifesto here


Throughout the year writing opportunities are planned to inspire our pupils.
Each year we do a extended Christmas based writing activity across the whole school to give writing a purpose. In 2018 we produced an 
'Elf Anthology' to celebrate each year group's inspiration following the arrival of a naughty elf in school!
