Phonics is taught systematically at All Saints' from Nursery class to Year 2.
We use a range of resources to teach phonics including 'Big Cat Phonics' published materials, Read, Write Inc resources and various games. We follow the progression as described in the 'Letters and Sounds' strategy.
In 2017, 90% of children in Year 1 passed the National phonics screening check.
If children do not pass the check, they have a chance to retake the test the following year. In 2017, 100% of children at All Saints' who needed to retake the check passed.
