We have just introduced Monster Phonics to our phonics teaching in EYFS and KS1. Please see your child’s Microsoft Teams account to find out the teaching focus of your child’s daily phonic lesson and follow the direct link to access the teaching resources to support that days learning.  We are lucky enough to have been given temporarily free access for Monster Phonics for all our parents, so all resources can be accessed for free.

We do this within the context of a small family focussed environment that stimulates a love of learning.  We are committed to our mission statement of ‘Exciting minds, learning, achieving’. Through this we support our children to succeed academically, socially, personally, physically and spiritually, both inside and outside school. 

The school environment is a calm and safe place where children feel they are able to ask for support and advice and are part of the decision making process.
