How does Happy Handwriting support a modern curriculum?

Recognises that efficient, automatic letter generation contributes to the quality of what children write

Emphasises the importance of consistency and continuity

Based on a wide range of handwriting research from around the world

“If children can’t generate letters automatically, it interferes with their ability to read and write.” – Dr Jane Medwell Meet the editor

Jane Medwell started her career as a teacher in schools in England and Wales, teaching across the age phases. Her interest in languages, early literacy and English led her into university teaching, and she is now an associate professor at the University of Nottingham, researching and writing into handwriting and primary education.
