At Sutton C of E Primary school we firmly believe that children should learn to be able to write legibly, fluently and at speed. Handwriting is essential to support children being effective communicators and produce high quality, creative and well structured writing. Even with increasing use of modern technology, handwriting is still an important life skill that will help children demonstrate their true potential throughout school and beyond.
- To develop legible handwriting.
- Where appropriate, we teach cursive handwriting (recommended by the British Dyslexia Association) to meet the individual needs of our children.
- To encourage children to develop a sense of pride in their work, enabling them to present work neatly for an audience.
