All English teachers have been given a copy of Sheena Cameron and Louise Dempsey's brilliant book 'The Writing Book'.
Literacy Coach Ali Newbold said the aim of the purchase and distribution was to 'improve the explicit teaching of writing across the school'.
Staff will begin working through the book with Ali and their classes next term.
The book guides teachers and schools through the processes of planning a writing curriculum, teaching the 'skills toolkit', teaching writing and ways to review, edit, publish and celebrate students writing.
There are some free resources on the website, including a useful 'Sentence Opener Ladder', which offers a variety of sentence starters for students at different levels of writing prowess.
