Special Educational Needs
All children are included in our whole school reading curriculum; we prioritise learning to read for all children regardless of need or ability. In line with the growing consensus among academics, children will receive phonics teaching, via Read Write Inc, which is taught through direct instruction and made accessible to the individual developmental level of the child. Teachers break learning down into small achievable steps which are suitable to the pace of the child. Within individual lessons teachers adapt instruction to ensure appropriate time is given over to scaffolding and modelling to allow children to make progress from their individual starting point.
