Phonics and Reading Statement

Phonics at Coates Way School is taught following the Letters and Sounds document supported by the use of Jolly Phonics materials. We have developed a uniform approach to our resources and teaching which develops progressively from Nursery to Year Two, and into Key Stage Two as necessary. Lessons are taught daily and systematically to ensure that children have the skills to meet the requirements of the Phonics Screening Check in Year 1. Children are regularly assessed and there are additional planned intervention groups for children needing extra support.
