How You can Help
If you have any knowledge, skill, or artefacts related to what we are learning in school, then please do get in touch with your child’s teacher. We love having our Parents and Carers come in and help us all to learn!

Statutory Assessments
Children in Year 1 undergo the Phonics Screening Check in the Summer Term. Children are asked to read 20 real words and 20 ‘pseudo-words’. The children are well prepared through normal English lessons and they are rarely, if ever, aware that the check is taking place.

You can find this term’s letter to parents and carers and Topic Plan in the ‘Related Documents’ box to the left of the screen.
