At The Cathedral School we believe that when children learn to write correctly writing becomes easier and more fluent.  We offer bronze, silver and gold pen licences to children to encourage them to practice good handwriting at all times.  Please see the attached documents for the criteria for each level of pen licence. It has been our experience that most children are very keen to achieve these licences.  If you have any questions please contact your child’s teacher.

The expectations for handwriting differ between the different key stages.  The attached document explains the handwriting expectations as children progress through primary school.
