Phonics and Reading Schemes

Reading Scheme & Phonics
We develop a love for reading and provide our children with a wealth of reading material, introducing them to various authors and different types of genres.


We use the ‘Letters and Sounds’ Principles and Practice of High Quality Phonics Six-phase Teaching Programme to systematically teach phonics.
Our daily Phonics sessions are streamed throughout EYFS and KS.

Oxford Reading Tree is the main reading scheme used to teach reading throughout the school. However, this is supplemented by various other schemes to provide an even richer range of texts.
Our books are colour banded throughout the whole school which allows children to see their own progression and experience a wide range of schemes at the appropriate level.
In addition to this our reading comprehension is supported by the Schofield and Simpson comprehension scheme and PIRA and Head Start Assessments.
