By the end of their time with us, pupils are confident readers and spellers who enjoy discovering new and challenging reading matter.  It is our role to ensure that secure phonic knowledge provides them with the skills to access our exciting and varied curriculum. Our goal is to help children become enthusiastic and inquisitive readers who can use their background knowledge to fully understand and enjoy the text they are reading. We ensure that vocabulary is unpicked and cultural references explained so that pupils develop the cultural capital they need to succeed.  SEND and vulnerable children benefit from our stimulating and vibrant phonics scheme as well as an ambitious programme of precision teaching.  This enables them to develop their love of reading alongside efficient decoding skills.
