The phonics scheme was use in school is Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised.


Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised is a complete systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP) developed for schools by schools. Based on the original Letters and Sounds, but extensively revised to provide a complete teaching programme meeting all the expectations of the National Curriculum, the Ofsted Deep Dive into reading and preparing children to go beyond the expectations of the Phonics Screening Check.

Our Ofsted inspection in March 2023 praised our phonics and reading curriculum:

'Leaders’ reading curriculum is well thought through. Children are introduced to reading from the very start in Reception. Phonics is taught consistently and well. Pupils read books matched to their phonics knowledge. This helps pupils to practise their phonics knowledge and become fluent, accurate readers. Teachers spot pupils who have gaps in their reading knowledge. Staff effectively support them to catch up. Pupils read a range of diverse texts, which helps them to develop a love of reading and extends their knowledge of the world.'
