Bringing out the Best



Phonics is taught strategically through the ‘Roots’ SfA programme and is directly linked to reading texts ensuring phonic sounds being learnt are practised and embedded through reading. Regular assessment of phonics and reading ensure that progress and any gaps are quickly identified and children are able to move on with their learning.


The Letters and Sounds programme is also used in EYFS phonics as an additional support for lower ability children and to support them in meeting their individual needs.
