At St. Mary’s RC First School we recognise that being able to read is the most important skill children will learn during their early schooling. This has far-reaching implications for lifelong confidence and well-being.
Our curriculum gives early years teaching staff a powerful phonics teaching tool to ensure that young children are well-placed to read and spell words with fluency and confidence by the time they reach the end of KS1. This is an entitlement we want to achieve for every child.
The following gives a brief summary of our curriculum. For further information please refer to our Progression documents and the Intent, Implementation, and Impact Documents on this website and explore the following links:
