Handwriting Policy

Handwriting Policy


We have recently implemented a Handwriting Policy which can be found in the Policies section. Please do take the time to read it as it explains how we expect your child to form and eventually join their letters. Presentation is central to all work and our aim is to encourage children to become proficient with a pen, so that by the middle of Year 4 most children are writing with a pen for most of English and topic work. If a child has developed the skills required in joining, correct sizing and shaping and is also producing very neat work consistently across the curriculum, then the teacher will allow them to practise using a pen in handwriting sessions in preparation for receiving their Pen Licence from myself. I will be issuing the first Pen Licences over the next few weeks once we have spoken to the children about the criteria for awarding them.

If you have any questions regarding the policy then please do speak to your child's teacher.

Yours sincerely,

Mrs Fiske
