All children have a daily spelling or phonics session, which is taught at a level appropriate to their needs.
We use the Read Write Inc., scheme to ensure there is a systematic approach to the development of children’s phonic knowledge. For children who are not developing their reading skills as fast as they need to, we provide additional daily catch-up opportunities.
Please find some supportive videos that help parents understand phonics and how best to support your child at home. There is also a Frequently Asked Questions document which may answer some of your questions.
We have a number of children who start our school in different year groups without any English. With these pupils’ specific needs in mind, we run a bespoke EAL group, which focuses on basic language. When pupils are ready, they access phonics in a group with peers of a similar age.
We also use the Read Write Inc. spelling programme to support our teaching of spelling in Y2-6. As part of our systematic approach to teaching phonics and spelling, we regularly assess pupils to ensure expected or better progress is made. We know that not all children learn to read and write at the same pace, so we have bespoke spelling interventions depending on need. These include ‘Five Minute Box’ and IDL (Indirect Dyslexia Learning) Literacy.
