Phonics intervention is taught four times per week to those pupils who do not have a secure phonic knowledge. Phonics teaching follows the Read, Write, Inc programme and this is taught by teachers who are fully trained to deliver this programme. Key resources include RWI flashcards for speed sounds, red and green words and a wall chart which is placed in all classrooms and intervention rooms so that pupils can refer to them to support their reading (and writing).

In order to improve spelling, we have now bought into the PiXL vocabulary app and Spelling Shed. These provide children with online materials that can be accessed at home and resources for teachers that they can use to address key elements of the spelling curriculum. In addition, we provide children with access to dictionaries on their tables and iPads in every classroom, to help improve spelling accuracy.
