Our Phonics programme is by far the most extensive of any other phonics teaching scheme. We not only ensure that the children are able to say every possible sound in the English Language but they are taught to identify every single alternative way of representing it. The children as a result are able to read any English word that they wish. This has huge implications for their learning. They are able to learn by themselves through books and other media without being reliant on adults. They are able to write truly independently and with great pride.
