Parents’ guide to handwriting


It can be difficult to know whether your child’s handwriting is normal for their age group or whether they would benefit from some extra support at home.

Please find useful information and resources on the following website to help your child become a happy writer.


The Teach Handwriting Scheme and website teaches the capital letters together with a choice of the three main lower-case font styles taught in UK schools: print (manuscript), cursive and continuous cursive.


  • Print - These letters never join and have a range of starting and finishing points.
  • Cursive - These letters have the same starting points as print but with the exit strokes included.
  • Continuous Cursive - These letters all incorporate entry and exit joining strokes, have the same starting point and the majority have the same finishing point.


As a school, we have chosen to use :


Teaching Route B - choice 2

To first teach the print (manuscript) font style; then the single letter continuous cursive font style; finally joining the letters.
