Barrow Hedges Primary School

Handwriting

In this section...

As a school we teach a cursive curriculum and set high standards for presentation in all work. 

In Key Stage One, children work towards becoming a Handwriting Hero. This award, along with a very special pencil, is given to children that have worked diligently towards improving their handwriting and can subsequently come away from using handwriting guidelines in their written work.

In Key Stage Two, children work towards receiving their pen license. Once a child has shown that they can consistently join their handwriting, keeping their presentation skills at a high level, and maintain this in all lessons, they receive this license and are given a handwriting pen to use rather than pencil. 

Please find attached our handwriting policy and useful resources to help support your child's writing.
