We use the National Curriculum and other published frameworks as a guide. However, topics and schemes are adapted to be relevant to the experience of children when possible. We also try to develop the children's understanding of their own learning behaviour and cultural diversity, within a Christian ethos.
In Key Stage 1, we use the Read, Write, Ink scheme for Phonics and to teach reading.
The Power of Reading is used the school and this is having a positive impact on reading and writing across the school. Good quality texts are read with the children. Reading is taught through a variety of approaches including the daily teaching of synthetic phonics. Classes undertake small group guided reading sessions and quality texts are shared with the children. Individual reading takes place and parents and carers are encouraged to support pupils at home. Class reading, at the end of the day, takes place and again good quality texts are used.
