Handwriting is a key skill which we teach at All Saints'.


We aim for our children to know the importance of clear and neat handwriting in order to communicate meaning effectively.


General Principles


To write legibly in both joined and printed styles with increasing fluency and speed by:

  • Having a correct ‘froggy’ (tripod) pencil grip.

  • Knowing that all letters start from the bottom.

  • Knowing that most letters return to the line except v, w, o and r which finish at the top.

  • Forming all letters correctly (properly closed ‘a’s for instance).

  • Knowing the size and orientation of all letters.
