Characteristics of Effective Learning

We believe it is important for children to develop as confident, competent and independent learners. These characteristics of effective learning embody skills that support the child in becoming a successful learner.

Phonic Sounds

Below is a link to the pronunciation of our current phonic sounds, you can use these to support your child with their reading and writing at home. We use "Red Rose Phonics" which is closely aligned to "Letters and Sounds". Our reading books match the phonic sounds as they are learnt.
