Reading & Phonics

The teaching of reading is prioritised to allow pupils to access the full curriculum offer. A rigorous and sequential approach to the reading curriculum develops pupils’ fluency, confidence and enjoyment in reading.  Reading is taught initially via high quality and pacy daily phonics sessions following the ‘Read, Write, Inc’ scheme. There is a sharp focus on ensuring that younger children gain phonics knowledge and language comprehension necessary to read, and the skills to communicate, gives them the foundations for future learning. 

The children have a rich reading curriculum and the skills of reading are taught through effective shared and guided reading sessions which are sequential and build upon prior learning.

In 2019, we introduced Accelerated Reader. This runs from Year 2 up to Year 6.
