Phonics and Early Reading Statement

We teach phonics using Sounds-Write, a structured synthetic phonics program.


Training School

We are very proud to be one of the few Sounds-Write Training Schools providing phonics teaching for training purposes and offer taster mornings introducing the Sounds-Write program to other schools and English Hubs. Feedback from visiting schools has consistently been positive.

National Phonic Screening

All pupils in Year 1 have a national phonics screening check which is carried out in June each year. Any pupil who does not attain the required standard repeat the screening in Year 2. This is to ensure that all pupils have a secure foundation upon which to build their reading skills in Key Stage 2.
