Teachers at Oasis Academy New Oak are committed to helping all students develop a neat and legible handwriting. From Reception children are encouraged to form letters carefully and accurately, first in pre-cursive and then in cursive (joined up) style. Their progress is monitored and assessed termly against 4 handwriting milestones.
Parents are informed when their child reaches a handwriting milestone (please click here for more information). When students reach milestone 3 they are given their pen licence: it is anticipated that by Year 4 all students will have earned their pen license.
Do encourage your children to practise their handwriting at home. Click here for information on letter formation.
