Reading and Phonics

Phonics is taught daily. Reading is promoted in every lesson, every day, and across the 24 curriculum into residential care. We have a beautiful, well stocked library, with current books, fiction and non-fiction, as well as a range of audiobooks, and magazines.

Drop Everything and Read is a whole academy approach to reading; to foster a love of literature, and for some, to develop functional literacy skills, in order to improve their vocabulary, and give them the best life chances, and success at future employment.

Since March 2022, we use Read Write Inc Phonics resources, and teach phonics daily through the suggested approach delivered to our teachers and support staff during a training day in February.
