At Holdbrook Primary School we recognise that spelling needs to be taught. We believe it is important to teach our children the spelling rules and conventions so they are able to apply these to their writing independently. We also value the importance of editing work and encourage children to independently address any spelling mistakes.
We use 'No nonsense Spelling' which is a spelling programme that meets the needs of the 2014 National curriculum in a manageable way.
We actively encourage our parents to support their children at home by learning the common exception words for their each year group.
