“Reading for pleasure is the single biggest factor in success later in life, outside of an education. Study after study has shown that those children who read for pleasure are the ones who are most likely to fulfil their ambitions. If your child reads, they will succeed – it’s that simple.”

At the start of January 2018, to support our teaching of reading,  we launched a Read Write Inc Phonics across Reception, KS1 and Years 3 & 4. This phonics programme is hugely successful in schools across the UK in teaching systematic phonics and raising the standard of reading and spelling (See document, 'Reading by Six')

We held a workshop for parents to introduce this scheme and give ideas of how to support the development of phonics and reading at home. These were highly attended and ran very successfully. We will be running more phonics workshops to give parents and carers help with specific elements. We will also be opening up the classrooms for you to come and watch a phonics lesson and work alongside your child. Watch this space for more details about this upcoming events.
