“A high-quality education in English will teach pupils to speak and write fluently so that they can communicate their ideas and emotions to others and through their reading and listening, others can communicate with them.”  

      National Curriculum for English 2014


At Hinguar Primary School we believe that we value reading as a key life skill, and are dedicated to enabling our pupils to become lifelong readers. We believe reading is key for academic success and strongly believe that Phonics plays an important part within this.

Phonics is taught in a highly structured programme of daily lessons across EYFS and KS1 and for those children identified through assessments of benefitting from regular phonics input within KS2. This is provided in groups differentiated according to children’s phonic awareness and development. The Letters and Sound programme is followed, providing a synthetic approach to the teaching of phonics. Each session gives an opportunity for children to revisit their previous experience, be taught new skills, practise together and apply what they have learned.

We strive to provide an inspiring, safe and engaging learning environment in which our children will be enabled to develop their skills and understanding.
