Literacy

This page is under review and will be updated within the few weeks.

Phonics 
For early phonics progression, we use the Ransom Unlocking Letters and Sounds systematic synthetic phonics programme. Children read  books which match their phonics confidence at each phase. Please use the adjacent link for more details.

Since 2014, we have been recognised by the Department for Education as being in the top 5% of schools nationally for achievement in phonics. In 2016, 100% of children passed the phonics test, placing us in the top 2% nationally and in 2019, 98% of our children reached the threshold. 

Spelling
On a weekly basis all children from year one complete a spelling test and regularly they complete an extended piece of writing.  Please go to the Parent Pages for more information about spelling.
