We teach phonics from Reception using the government recommended Letters and Sounds programme. From the Spring term in Year R we group the children according to their need and work our way through the phases throughout Key Stage 1.

The children in Year 1 take the Phonics Assessment Check in June. In June 2018 79% of our children reached the expected threshold.

We use a variety of resources including many websites to develop and support our children’s developing phonetic and reading ability.
