Reading and Phonics
We use Read, Write Inc. as our scheme of work to support literacy.
Pupils are grouped into Letters and Sounds Phases, with targeted interventions delivered by a specially trained HLTA and TA. Some classes have daily phonics lessons.
All classes in Primary have a daily guided reading session, and there are also opprtunities for 1:1 reading. Books are sent home to parents and carers so that children can read aloud and continue to enjoy the written word.
Sound Reading System – All pupils are screened using the York Assessment of Reading Comprehension. From this data, pupils are selected to received reading interventions using the Sound Reading System programme.
Nelson Handwriting Programme – Some pupils in KS3 are supported on a 1:1 or 1:2 basis, to develop their handwriting skills with the Nelson Handwriting Scheme. Teachers and Key Stage Co-ordinators agree with the SENCo on the most appropriate pupils for this intervention.
