'The training we received from Nicky at Better Handwritten was superb. She listened to our needs and then tailored the training so that it was bespoke for our school. The content was easy to access and delivered in an engaging and insightful manner. Staff were hugely complimentary about the training and the fact they could immediately implement actions to support children with their handwriting development. Excellent value for money!’

SUPPORT YOUR STAFF AND TEACH YOUR STUDENTS WITH...
You know how busy they are. One of the best ways you can support them is investing in effective resources that save them precious time and provide a clear yet flexible approach where they still have ownership.
The Home and School Handwriting Programme provides:
guidance for use
printable practice sheets with large, medium and small line sizes (as appropriate) to support progress as control develops
printable 'handwriting' and 'regular' practice sheets to ensure support and transfer to standard books
a complete set of blank sheets so staff can create their own practices
a flexible resource that will continue to grow in response to your feedback and requests. If there's anything you wish was there or if, for example, you have an alternative formation to a letter you'd prefer, simply get in touch and we'll look to add what you need!
... will benefit from a simple, structured approach that supports them with a transferable model for personal change and development.
You may decide to use the programme with:
particular year groups
identified students within each year group
WORK WITH PARENTS
So often parents want to help but don't know how. There's no doubt we achieve the best outcomes for students when we work together and are on the same page.
When you buy a school subscription your enrolled students will be able to access the programme at home. The guidance, bite-sized demonstration videos and simple worksheets make it easy to establish a positive, manageable consistent routine.
"I do really like your short sequences and instructions. They make it easy for me to remember how to guide my son." Parent
