In 2012 we were able to sell our home buy a motor home and spend 13 months travelling the UK, Europe and New Zealand.
Developing a website, to keep our minds active, seemed perfect for people on the move; internet access permitting. A lack of computing knowledge wasn’t going to stand in our way!
As Lucy had entered the education profession to support our two dyslexic daughters, as there wasn’t a lot of help or information out there at the time, our website would try to support other parents who desperately want to help their kids but didn't know where to go or were confused by the mumbo jumbo.
We would start with handwriting as learning this skill unlocked so much more for children.
What Happened Next
In April 2013 we decided it was time to put down some roots and to get more serious about our website’s future.
Following requests from schools we launched our fully differentiated whole school Teach Handwriting Scheme to accompany the website in July 2016. We also began to run bespoke training courses in schools to support the teaching of handwriting.
Our Teach Handwriting Scheme is now being implemented in schools all over the UK, we even have International Schools using the scheme, and more and more schools booking inset training days and other bespoke training options.
This enables us to develop the Teach Handwriting website and our other website Teach Phonics whilst keeping them completely free.
This is important to us because we believe that every child matters, not some more than others. By sharing our knowledge we hope that you will be able to help and support your children in ways that weren’t available to us when our girls were younger.
