Is there an official font for writing letters, joined writing & numbers?

Discussion in 'Primary' started by foxinLondon, Apr 9, 2012.

  1. Hello,
    I had my teacher training not in England and wonder if there's an official way of how to write letters & numbers,
    eg

    numbers: open or closed 4, 7 with line in the middle or not etc
    letters: how exactly do they need to be formed, eg how long is the line of an f (as deep down as y) etc.?

    I'm an early years teacher and just wonder if there's a link to a publication/ overview which is official in any way, not sure what that would be at the moment, National Curriculum/ Literacy Strategy???

    Would be greatful for any advice or links or emails?

    Thank you!

    No there isn't a prescribed way of writing schools are free to adopt their own style.
    Many schools do use Sassoon font .
