As we are constantly striving for higher standards with our writing, we have introduced a set of `non-negotiables` for writing. We expect the children to remember these every time they write and to check their work independently. If they need to edit, they can do so which is an important part of being accountable for their own learning. This will help the children to focus on their new writing targets to improve their writing even further.
