The school's phonic programme is Read Write Inc. This is delivered to children in the Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 and to children in key stage 2 who require a catch up programme in phonics.
A range of book banded texts are used in key stage 1. These include books from the following schemes: PM, Rigby Star, Big Cat and Alpha Kids. Children are encouraged to read texts which enable them to apply their phonic skills alongside reading for meaning and pleasure.
In year two, pupils aged 7 will take SATs, usually in the form of assessments in class, which help us to better understand your child's education needs as they move up to KS2.

Our planning consists of a Long Term Plan which is an overview of the year, this is then broken down with additional detail into Medium Term Plans; these outline what is due to be covered in Autumn, Spring and Summer terms.
Our Subject Leaders have been working alongside others within the WPAT to devise subject specific medium term plans and knowledge organisers. These can be accessed here.
