The school follows the National Curriculum introduced in September 2014.
The whole school teaches phonics using the Letters and Sounds and Jolly Phonics schemes. In Reception, Yr 1 and Yr 2 there are daily phonics sessions.

As well as using phonics to support the children’s development in reading, the school also encourages the enjoyment of reading through a rich reading and literary environment that includes a wide range of stories read in class, visits to the school library, visits to the village library and visits to the school by poets and authors. The school’s reading schemes include:
Oxford Reading Tree
Jelly and Bean
Collins Big Cat
Teachers employ a wide range of exciting strategies and resources to inspire children's writing. As well as structured writing lessons, children also have the opportunity to write creatively and freely in their own writing journals.
On 19th January 2016 we held a phonics information morning for parents. If you were unable to attend, or would like to recap what was said, click here for the Power Point presentation.
