Staincliffe CE Junior School

Respect, Trust, Courage and Joy


At Staincliffe, SPaG will be taught across the whole school and each year will develop children’s knowledge and build on previous learning. All children are taught spelling, punctuation and grammar in focussed sessions and then they are expected to apply their knowledge and skills in their writing. Children are expected to know the correct names of the terms involved. Children are assessed in their knowledge termly. We follow the spelling scheme in Spelling Shed as well as teaching words from the National Curriculum lists.
