At our school, we embed phonics learning by teaching high quality, stimulating and active sessions in a systematic way, so all children develop a secure understanding of letters and sounds, enabling them to read with fluency and apply knowledge and skills to spell accurately within their writing across the curriculum.



Phonics is taught in every class across the whole school, including the Nursery. We follow the Letters and Sounds programme, supplemented with Jolly Phonics actions and resources from other sources as appropriate. The children are streamed in Year R, 1 and 2 and within each group lessons are differentiated to ensure all children are accessing high quality teaching at the level appropriate for their learning at that time. Groups are fluid to ensure children can move between them depending on the rate of their progress, fully maximising learning.
