Teaching of Reading and Phonics

The Teaching of Reading at Swansfield Park Primary School
'Reading is fundamental to education. Proficiency in reading, writing and spoken language is vital for pupils’ success.'
(The Reading Framework, July 2021)
We wholeheartedly agree with this and so we place reading at the heart of our curriculum. 
This document will give you clear information about the intent and implementation of reading at Swansfield Park Primary School. 
The teaching of Phonics at Swansfield Park primary School
We are very proud of our phonics provision here at Swansfield and we follow the Read Write Inc Phonics scheme. 
In 2021, 96% of our children achieved the expected standard in the National Phonics Check. These excellent phonics skills ensure that our children are successful decoders of text, one of the essential skills needed to be a fluent and effective reader. 
This document provides information on the intention and implementation of our phonics teaching. 
We also hope that you enjoy looking at these images of our hard-working and successful Read Write Inc'ers!
