Phonics and Reading

Phonics and Reading: We teach systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) through the Letters and Sounds Programme. This is under review as we await the Government's updated Accredited SSP Programme Providers list.

Children learn to read through the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme - Floppy's Phonics, Biff, Chip and Kipper and Project X books.

Additional texts supplement our reading scheme and we have a large infant and junior library to support reading.

We actively encourage families to read at home and also to volunteer in school to read with children.
