At North Duffield Community Primary School, we believe in a synthetic and consistent approach to phonics development. We follow Reading Planets Rocket Phonics; this is a government validated programme that engages and supports children through the use of interactive resources and varied opportunities to apply skills. Daily lessons in KS1, led by phonics experts, help children to develop and master the skills required to confidently read and write.
All children undertake the DfE Statutory Phonics Screening Programme at the end of Year One. Children who need more time on their phonics road map beyond KS1, to secure those lifelong skills, have tailored individual interventions during KS2.
