Phonics & Reading Schemes

“Pupils have good phonics skills. In 2017, a larger proportion of pupils reached the expected standard in the Year 1 phonics screening check, when compared to the national average. School data suggests that this trend is set to continue. Current pupils are making strong gains in developing their understanding of letters and the sounds they make. From the early years, many are able to blend sounds together to make words.”

Our phonics scheme is Read Write Inc, which is a proven synthetic approach to phonics.  Children read books from this scheme to support them in practising the phonemes they are currently learning.


Our main reading scheme is The Oxford Reading Tree, with supplementary readers from other schemes including Storyworlds and Big Cat.
