Effective handwriting

We provide a coherent training session to ensure teachers get the best possible overview of the key issues involved in teaching handwriting and ensuring progression across the school.

The session can be delivered in a one-hour staff meeting. Ideally the training is delivered in half an INSET day, or over two staff meetings. This ensures that participants have time to practise and apply key concepts. It also enables staff to begin to plan the first lessons using the Effective Handwriting approach.

Many teachers have received little, if any, useful training in teaching handwriting. We have found that equipping teachers with core subject knowledge in this area makes a huge difference. Too often handwriting lessons can end up being copying exercises – and people wonder why the children are not transferring the content of the lesson to their everyday writing.
The essential concepts are relatively simple to master and quickly transferred to classroom practice.
