Phonics is a fundamental element in the teaching of early reading. Fidelity to a rigorous Synthetic Phonics Programme ( SSP) is essential to ensure children have the greatest chance of success.

Daily phonics lessons using Read Write Inc delivered by trained reading teachers and assessments every half term ensure pupils progress through the programme quickly and develop the ability to read fluently and confidently.
