Developing reading and writing is a key priority for all of our children. Children in Reception and Key Stage 1 use Supersonic Phonic Friends in order to develop their phonics, reading and writing skills. We use the Pearson Bug Club reading scheme to develop children’s reading across the school and their intervention schemes: Rapid Reading and Rapid Phonics to support children who need additional help. In Key Stage Two, we use an online programme called Reading Wise which focuses on developing decoding skills within reading.  We also have a team of dedicated Reading Rangers who support our children in developing their reading fluency and comprehension. 

Below are a number of useful documents designed to help parents understand what is taught. There are also a number of other documents and website links to help parents support their child with maths and English. CGP offer a number of inexpensive publications linked to the National Curriculum which parents might find useful if they want to support their children further. These are available online or from most educational bookshops.
