Phonics and Reading

Phonics and Reading

Reading is the key to success in life and we actively prioritise and encourage a love of reading. 

We teach systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) through the Twinkl Accredited SSP Programme Provider. Children learn to read through phonically de-codable books matched to the programme.

We have a large Infant and Junior Library to support reading to help encourage a love of reading.

We actively encourage families to read daily at home with the children and also to volunteer in school to read with children. If you have time to spare to help with this, please contact the school office.
