Phonics & Early Reading

Exwick Heights Primary School has adopted the Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised systematic synthetic phonics programme (SSP). This programme has been validated by the Department for Education (July 2021). It provides a complete teaching programme meeting all the expectations of the National Curriculum, the Ofsted Deep Dive into reading, and prepares our children to go beyond the expectations of the Phonics Screening Check.

Find our full Reception and Year 1 teaching programme overview here, to see what your child will learn and when.

  • Support for phonics
