Phonics Progression Statement:
We are committed to a systematic, synthetic phonics programme of learning. We have fidelity to the Letters and Sounds guidance. Although we recognise that this is no longer a validated scheme, we ensure that we use appropriate resources, have fully decodable books matched to pupils’ phonic knowledge, provide high-quality staff training and achieve strong results. Our approach meets the expectations of the 16 essential core criteria. Used alongside our strategy for supporting children with additional needs and dyslexia, the approach works for all children, including the most disadvantaged.
