At West Rise, we develop writing enthusiasts who…


  • can engage the reader with powerful and emotive language
  • can write with confidence, conveying personal opinions as well as facts
  • understand how to communicate effectively in a range of formats
  • are competent spellers with a good knowledge of grammatical techniques

The development of good writing abilities is a key skill. We help children to gain confidence to communicate through the written word.

We encourage an interest in prose and poetry. This helps to develop a child’s potential. Strong writing skills are essential to participate in society.
