Willaston Church of England Primary School


This week in school, we have launched a new handwriting scheme.


We have changed from the Nelson scheme to a more cursive style, which promotes more fluency when joining writing. Having joined handwriting is a national requirement for children to achieve the expected level for writing at the end of Key Stage 2.


The response from the pupils has been very positive, with many of them saying that they felt that it flowed more easily and that they could get ideas onto paper more quickly.


Please find attached a copy of the scheme that we are now following, which can also be found as an appendix in the school English policy.


Thank you


Mr P Hindle

Deputy Head and English subject lead.
