Phonics and Reading

This page of our website is dedicated to our phonics and reading programmes.


In Early Years and Key Stage 1 we use the Read Write Inc scheme to assist in the teaching of phonics. Have a look on for more information. Also, click here to read correspondence explaining how the Read Write Inc scheme would work, and click here to see frequently asked questions and answers that might help your understanding.

In 2016 we were awarded 'Model School' status for Read Write Inc. This was an acknowledgement of the quality of teaching and for our pupil attainment. We also host training days for other schools on site. 

In Early Years and Key Stage 1 we use the Oxford Reading Tree reading scheme to progress reading skills. It is the number one reading programme in the UK and has systematic phonics at its heart. Over 800 books provide a varied choice of writing styles, genres and artwork styles at every level, enabling the children to become confident readers.
