Essential Letters & Sounds

Essentials Letters and Sounds

Following an update from the DfE around phonics teaching we have moved to Essential Letters and Sounds (ELS), this is a phonics programme based on Letters and Sounds (2007). This new phonics programme will support your children in making quick progress to become fluent and confident readers.

 

ELS is based on simplicity and consistency, and the programme is delivered through daily whole-class lessons, with ongoing assessments to inform teachers of extra targeted interventions to support all children's needs. This is so children ‘keep up’ rather than ‘catch up’. 

 

The programme is designed so consistent terminology is used by teachers, children and parents, as well as using fully decodable books for the children to access independently and apply the graphemes that have been taught during lessons. Our fully decodable books are designed to precisely match ELS and each of the phonics teaching Sets. It means that your child can enjoy reading books that practice the exact grapheme-phoneme correspondences that they have just been taught by their teacher.

 

Nursery Application deadline for September 2022-23 entry will be Friday 10th December-Contact the school office for more information...Our aim is that every child leaves here an Ambassador of Christ; a person who will make a powerful, positive change in the world. #Encourage, Challenge and Support.#
