The writing in the school has recently received a glowing comment from Jane Considine of Training Space.  Jane is a nationally acknowledged expert on the teaching of writing and reading skills.  She states that:

As we continue to share success stories, Long Buckby Junior school is our next focus. We just had to share their writing success with you! Following their initial training, this school has worked incredibly hard to embed Jane Considine's Write Stuff system - explicit modelling, Sentence Stacking and opportunities to 'Deepen the Moment' have helped them on their journey to improve writing outcomes. They have now applied this system to writing across the whole curriculum and their stunning collections of cross-curricular writing have received high praise from all that have visited. We are so very proud of you all!  "Well what can I say about Long Buckby Juniors. The teachers not only care about writing...they show the pupils they care. The craft and construction of sentences is a priority and this couples with high celebration when children nail the purpose and intent of writing. Just go and visit and take a look. I mean it!"
