Phonics and Reading Schemes


Across the school we use the letters and sounds phonic scheme to build up our children’s knowledge and application of phonics for reading / writing.


We have a variety of reading schemes in school, but we mainly use Oxford Reading Tree, supported by Rigby Star, Project X, Collins Big Cat and New Way schemes.



In January 2016, we decided as a school to become a Values Based School.

Like increasing numbers of schools across the country, we felt the need to reassess our approach to learning and introduce a values-based approach not only into the curriculum but also into every aspect of daily school life.

To this end we consulted with the whole of our school community and chose 22 values which are rooted in fundamental British Values of Democracy, The rule of law, Individual liberty, Mutual respect and Tolerance of different faiths and beliefs.
