How do you know if your pupils are meeting the Standard & Testing Agency’s handwriting requirements?
What does “good” handwriting look like?
We will show and tell you at Down Hall Primary School on Monday, October 3rd at 18:00 hrs when Headteacher Mrs Lou Nelson and her English Subject Leader Miss Bec Wakefield will be:
- explaining how the school improved its Ofsted rating by improving pupils' handwriting
- discussing how the school is meeting the Standards & Testing Agency’s handwriting requirements
- showing how Start-Bee’s Handwriting Scheme for Schools works for EYFS and KS1
- talking about how the school is using the scheme as a handwriting intervention for KS2 pupils
- revealing the results the school has achieved in just under 5 months
The Standard & Testing Agency’s interim assessment in relation to handwriting requires, for the end of Key Stage 1, that every letter is formed using the correct starting and finishing point. However, this isn’t possible with many of the fonts being used in school today. With a lack of guidance coming from governmental departments, this event aims to fill in the gaps and share best practice to help schools overcome the problems affecting the teaching of handwriting in primary schools today.
Places are limited so you can reserve yours here for FREE. PLUS every attendee will get a Start-Bee ‘Handwriting Goodies’ bag AND money-off vouchers for our handwriting scheme and Handwriting Match Fit Assessment – a key tool for schools to help assess pupils’ handwriting ability and needs.
Look forward to seeing you there.
