At Moseley we are committed to ensuring that every pupil will learn to read fluently. As such, we recognise the importance of secure phonic knowledge and its direct impact on our high expectations of standards in reading, writing and spelling.
Across Early Years Foundation Stage (EYFS) and Key Stage One (KS1) we use our own, school-developed, phonics scheme for the systematic teaching of synthetic phonics.
In EYFS and KS1, phonics is taught as a whole-class to ensure all children receive direct, high quality input from their class teacher, progressing swiftly through our phonics programme.
In order for all children to succeed, responsive interventions take place where needed. Ongoing assessment of pupils' phonic progress identifies any child who may have gaps in their learning. Where they do, specific, targeted support is provided.
In order to ensure every child becomes a fluent reader, we have clear expectations of pupils' phonic progress each term from Reception to Year 2. Please see the files below for a copy of our phonics progression overview.
Correct articulation of phonemes is vital when teaching and learning phonics.
