Phonics and Reading

Phonics and Reading: We teach systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) through the Letters and Sounds Programme - July 2021: 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.
