At Sacred Heart we use the following schemes to enhance our phonics, reading, spelling and punctuation.

KS 1 - Read Write inc phonics is a literacy programme that aims to get children reading and writing quickly. The programme enables teachers to develop children's skills in reading, writing, spoken language, vocabulary, grammar and spelling in a fully intergrated way to raise standards in children's literacy and spark a life long love of reading.

KS 2 - Read, write, inc spelling  program is used to implement spellings and their rules. 


Reading books are book banded throughout both keystages and the children are regularly benchmarked to check they are on the correct bookband both for fluency and comprehension.


We use Bug club throughout the school to promote the comprehension and love of reading. Bug Club can be accessed by every pupil online, both at home and in school.
