Your Phonic co-ordinator is Mrs Webb.

Phonics is taught from Nursery to Year 2, and in KS2 if required.


At Flash Ley Primary School, all of the staff believe that every child can and will learn to read. Success at our school is based on a rigorous and sequential approach to developing speaking and listening and teaching reading, writing and spelling through systematic and synthetic phonics.  Lessons are based on a four part plan which includes: revisit, teach, practise and apply.


In school, we follow the Letters and Sounds Principles and Practice of High Quality Phonics Six Phase Teaching Programme progression scheme produced by the Department of Education and Skills. Children are expected to enter school already having completed phase 1 in their nursery provision. By the end of year one the children will be tested on phonic knowledge with the phonics screening tests which is submitted to the local authority. By the end of year two children should be equipped with the phonics that they need in order to read and write and hopefully have completed up to phases 6.
