Handwriting guidelines revised

31 October 2016
The Handwriting guidelines have recently been updated and provide advice to support teachers and schools to effectively teach and assess handwriting.

These guidelines recognise the need for all students to develop a personal handwriting style that is legible, fluent and automatic that enables them to communicate effectively when writing for different purposes. The document replaces the Department’s previously published Handwriting guidelines. It makes explicit links to the content descriptions from the Western Australian Curriculum: English that form a mandatory part of each school’s teaching and learning program from 2015.
