Our Vision for Handwriting

At Meavy C of E Primary School, we believe that all children, by the end of KS2, should have the ability to produce fluent, legible and, eventually speedy joined-up handwriting. We aim to make handwriting an automatic process that does not interfere with creative and mental thinking. We believe that handwriting is a basic skill that influences the quality of work throughout the curriculum therefore we provide children with purposeful and plentiful opportunities to practise their handwriting regularly.


The National Curriculum 2014 places a clear emphasis on handwriting and outlines its importance in the development of children’s compositional skills.


As a school, we believe that handwriting is a skill that, like reading and spelling, affects written communication across the curriculum. Handwriting should be an automatic process which frees pupils to focus on the content of the writing.
