It’s not a question of “what can you do to support pupils in improving their handwriting?”, but rather it is a question of “how can you prevent pupils from developing illegible handwriting in the first place?”
For it is typically the case that pupils whose handwriting is illegible have picked up one or more bad habits which are solely responsible for their handwriting difficulties, such as gripping their pen or pencil too tightly, slouching, or failing to write on the guidelines.
Fortunately, most (bad) handwriting habits can be prevented in the first place. Or indeed, overcome, if your pupils are unfortunate enough to have already picked some up.
With this in mind we have devised the Handwriting Rescue Scheme – to ensure that pupils never make the same mistakes twice whilst learning how to handwrite and that they don’t pick up any bad habits which are known for making handwriting illegible.
The Handwriting Rescue Scheme is a complete programme for fully cursive handwriting containing over 300 structured exercises. It has been designed to establish the correct cursive letter formation and encourage an automatic response to frequently used spelling choices.
The programme is ideal for introducing cursive handwriting, particularly for pupils whose handwriting isn’t up to the expected standard for their age.
