Take a look at example handwriting and presentation policies from primary schools to get ideas for creating your own.

Handwriting and presentation policies


Robsack Wood Primary Academy in East Sussex has a policy that covers both handwriting and presentation.

This includes:

  • Handwriting provision
  • Pen licences
  • Presentation guides for English, maths and the wider curriculum

Tilney All Saints Church of England Primary School in Norfolk shares a policy with another primary school in its trust. This policy includes a summary of how handwriting and presentation should progress from the Early Years Foundation Stage to Key Stage 2.

Maintained schools

Ditton Infant School in Kent has a handwriting and presentation policy that you can download from the bottom of its page for parents.

This includes information about:

  • Inclusion
  • The role of teachers, teaching assistants, parents and carers
  • Strategies for left-handed children

Orleans Primary School in Richmond upon Thames breaks down its policy to show the handwriting and presentation expectations for different year groups.

Some schools choose to have a separate policy for presentation, rather than combining it
