It is our aim that pupils will develop a love of reading that lasts a lifetime. With this in mind, we teach the children from entry into Reception how to decode the written word efficiently using their phonic knowledge. We place great importance on the teaching of phonics and use the schemes, Letters and Sounds and Bug Club. This is taught from Reception and continues until the end of Year 2. Children who need additional support to help with their reading and writing are given focused intervention work, in small groups. This support continues into Key Stage 2 if necessary.
We are very proud of our recent Phonics Results, as we achieved 100% pass rate in the 2016 Phonic Screening Test .
