Montgomery Primary Academy is a successful school in inner city Birmingham. Just two years after being put into special measures and becoming an academy, we were judged to be ‘Good’ in all areas by Ofsted in September 2014. Our standards in writing have grown from strength to strength, achieving above national results both in attainment and progress. This is a phenomenal achievement considering over 98% of our pupils have English as an additional language. Talk for Writing has been a key driver in our success and we are keen to share what we have learnt with other schools who need support in developing writing.
