We teach Phonics using the the DfE recommended scheme Phonics Bug.

Pupils who do not pass the Phonics Check have additional support through school moving onto an individualised program, Toe by Toe.

Most of our pupils are Free Readers by the time they reach Year 4.

Our reading for pleasure is supported by having 2 well stocked lending libraries one for each key stage and a class library. The pupils also do a Summer Reading Challenge every year.

Family Support

Our early help offer is an approach we use in our school. Our primary aim is to identify needs early and to make sure that appropriate support is put in place. ALL staff recognise their role in always ensuring safeguarding practices to ALL children. We believe that information sharing, and timely effective support can ensure that ALL children and families get a good start in life. Families need support from a wide range of agencies. We recognise that other agencies will be able to support families based on their specialised work. We employ a Family Resource Worker (Jayne Doherty) on a weekly basis to support this approach with very effective outcomes.
