Sutton Primary School uses a systematic synthetic approach to phonics and follows the Read Write Inc. scheme. Children move through phases as they progress from Foundation to Year 2 and develop the skills in order to be able to read and spell. The scheme uses a review, teach, practise, and apply model and this is consistent across the school. Children have access to decodable reading books that match what they are being taught in phonics lessons and are read with regularly at school, and are encouraged to read daily at home. Our aim is that all children are fluent readers by the time they move into Key Stage 2. When children are noticed to have barriers to learning or gaps in their phonic knowledge they receive immediate individualised interventions to close these gaps.
