Harefield Junior School

Handwriting

At Harefield Junior School we believe handwriting should: 

•     help children to develop legible, fluent, efficient handwriting

•     develop a consistent style of handwriting throughout the school

•     make all staff consider themselves to be teachers of handwriting

 Teaching handwriting is a priority. Children need to learn to:

•     Write cursively with efficiency and speed, without having to think hard about how to formulate letters and join their writing.  This enables them to concentrate on what to write.               

We follow the Nelson Handwriting Scheme.
