There is a vigilant culture of safeguarding throughout school. Ofsted 2017


Our daily approach to phonics is delivered through the  Letters and Sounds Scheme of Work. This is planned daily in the foundation unit to cover the diverse range of needs for the nursery and reception class. These sessions can take the form of listening games and activities  for the  younger children and a more structured lesson for the older children as they move thorough the different Phases of Learning. Within year 1 and 2 daily phonics lessons are planned using the same scheme of work and are differentiated for the different  ability levels within the mixed age class.

Year 1 children take part in the phonics screening checks yearly. The results have been very positive: in 2016 we achieved a 100% pass rate. in 2017 we achieved 87%  and in 2018 we achieved 80%. These are consistently  good results.
