We ensure that children form their letters correctly as they progress through their reception year.  As they continue through year one and into year two, cursive handwriting is taught.  The aim is for all children to have neat, legible, well-formed handwriting, with correctly proportioned ascenders and descenders. Children may earn a pen licence in Lower Key Stage 2 when they prove they can maintain this neat style consistently. Whereas, in Upper Key Stage 2 the children who have previously earnt their pen licence will maintain this as long as they maintain their handwriting.
