Phonics is a way of teaching children how to read and write. It helps children hear, identify and use different sounds that distinguish one word from another in the English language.

We teach phonics through a synthetic systematic approaching, meaning that we introduce our learners to sounds in a planned progression format. We deliver daily phonics sessions which follow the teach, practice and apply structure. We base the structure of our teaching on the LCP phonics scheme. We are constantly reviewing and monitoring the impact of our phonics provisions to ensure our learners are making good progress in developing their phonological awareness.

We have developed our own coverage plan (detailed below):
