  1. Curriculum
  2. English
  3. Handwriting


At Holy Family Catholic Primary School, we teach children to write using a cursive script from Reception. We know that using a cursive script helps most children become more confident, fluent writers and also helps improve spelling.

We believe that good presentation skills are important as we want children to value their own work and for others to do the same. By introducing and teaching a consistent cursive script from Early Years, our aim is then for children to be able to focus upon the content of their writing from year 2 onwards rather than on the mechanics of handwriting.
