Handwriting at Springfield

 “Handwriting is a tool that has to work. It must be comfortable, fast and legible.”
Angela Webb, Chair, National Handwriting Association

“Tell me and I’ll forget; show me and I may remember; involve me and I’ll understand”
Chinese proverb

At Springfield Infant School, our aim is to support children to develop a handwriting style which is clear, joined and fluid.

Children will be encouraged to take pride in their written work, but also to be aware that different degrees of neatness may be appropriate for different tasks.

Please do read our Handwriting Policy below to find out more about how we practice handwriting across the curriculum and how you can further support your child’s handwriting skills.
