Curriculum Intent


At Highlands, we believe in providing life- long skills to support our children well into adulthood. Clear, legible handwriting is a key skill that is incredibly important even in the technological age that we live in.


We understand handwriting to be a developmental process with it's own stages of progression from readiness for handwriting, through to joining letters, practicing writing at speed and fluency therefore leading to improved presentation skills.


We have been following the PenPals Handwriting Programme as this provides  a comprehensive approach to better handwriting through targeting stages of development.
