Handwriting

We want all of our children to take pride in their presentation and we advocate a cursive/joined-up handwriting style throughout school. We use the website Letter-join as the basis of our handwriting policy that covers all the requirements of the 2014 National Curriculum.

We aim to make handwriting an automatic process that does not interfere with creative and mental thinking. We promote and teach pre-cursive handwriting in the Foundation Stage and Year 1 and cursive, joined-up handwriting in Year 2.
