Phonics & Reading Schemes

“Reading is at the heart of the curriculum.  The teachers have worked tirelessly to ensure phonics is taught consistently and systematically.”
                                                                        - OFSTED – September 2023

Our phonics and main reading 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 and have previously learned.


Once children reach the end of the RWI scheme and are assessed to be fluent readers, they can choose from other reading scheme books, including Oxford Reading Tree, Storyworlds and Big Cat, before moving on to become a 'free reader'.
