Background Slideshow




Our Phonics page outlines our approach to Early Reading under the Reading Framework. In our school, reading is given the highest priority of all our curriculum subjects. Through our reading offer in school, we want children to become confident, fluent readers with a love of vocabulary and books. Our curriculum ensures children read right across all subjects and have opportunities to explore high quality texts. 


You can help your child by listening to them their school reading book at home, ideally 3 times per week, and providing them with books at home. 



From the important early stages of writing by mark making and physical development in nursery through to deep understanding of texts, vocabulary and reader engagement, we aim for our children to be confident writers.

Our approach to teaching English encompasses all aspects of writing in the English lesson, rather than stand alone lessons so children are actively applying their learning.
