Bailey's Court Primary School


Developing reading, writing is a key priority for all of our children. Children in Reception and KS1 use a combination of the 'Letters and Sounds' and 'Jolly Phonics' schemes in order to develop their phonics. 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 support.

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.
