Handwriting and presentation

In Reception, children are taught standard letter formation. We use the Read, Write, Inc. resources to support our teaching. In Year One, we continue to develop clear and neat letter formation with consistent size and shape. When children are ready, they are taught how to write in a precursive style. In Year Two and beyond, all modelled writing is fully cursive. Children are encouraged to start joining as soon as they are ready. Children are taught handwriting explicitly and at every opportunity when they are writing. Any child, who finds any aspect of handwriting difficult, will be supported and appropriate intervention will be put in place.
