Throughout the school we have adopted the Write from the Beginning programme which is incorporated within our Literacy lessons. Write from the Beginning is a structured approach to the teaching of writing from Reception to Year 6 and the teaching of reading comprehension from Reception to Year 6. The programme demands that a consistent high quality approach to the teaching, planning and language is provided.

The school follows the Sounds Write phonics programme in Reception, Key Stage 1 and Key Stage 2. More details about this programme can be found by clicking on the following link –
