Abstract

This project set out to understand: To what extent does teachers’ confidence
affect the teaching of spelling, punctuation and grammar? The research aimed
to use this understanding to improve pedagogy in this area and consequently
in English as a whole subject. Questionnaires and interviews from a sample of
five teachers were used alongside field notes within a one form entry primary
school. The research found a lack of confidence in current educational policy
and the priorities of the government for English. Teachers felt a strong emphasis
on the SATS test has had a detrimental effect on children’s writing and creativity
within English. The project concludes with suggestions for teachers to work to
achieve a balance between governmental policy and their own philosophies for
teaching.
