A useful resource for supporting the teaching of handwriting in English primary schools, this updated edition gives guidance on all aspects of handwriting that need to be covered in a policy. Topics covered include deciding on your writing scheme, formulating an aim for the school’s handwriting teaching, provision for left handers and help with handwriting difficulties.
This new edition will inform an effective curriculum and ensure that all teachers have a sound understanding. The content relates to schools in England that are subject to the requirements of the Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and the National Curriculum (2013) and will help schools to meet the requirements of the Education Inspection Framework (2019). We hope that schools will take from it what they need and that other professionals might find it useful too.
