Reading and Phonics

The school follows the best principles of Sounds-Write and Read-Write-Inc to teach phonics. 

We do not have a specific "reading scheme." We have a large selection of reading books available in each classroom and our library that children have free access to, many of which are coded to Accelerated Reader.  Accelerated Reader is used with pupils from Year 2 upwards to support the assessment of reading skills and progress.
