To ensure that all children are taught strategies that will enable them to become fluent, enthusiastic readers and confident writers.
How do we do this?
Through the explicit, regular teaching of phonics and phonic strategies using a systematic, synthetic phonics approach
Through the explicit, regular teaching of spelling patterns and rules in a consistent progression
Through high quality formative assessment leading to careful differentiation for all ability groups
Through modelling the use of the phonic strategies when reading, leading to the finding of meaning in the text
Through fostering an atmosphere of enjoyment around reading and writing
