Learning Phonics at Granton Primary School

The teaching of synthetic phonics is systematic across KS1 and is led by an experienced subject leader and overseen by the KS1 leader.   

Phonics provision is taught to an outstanding level in EYFS and KS1 through the use of the programme ‘Letters and Sounds’.  This is reflected by the higher than National Average results in the phonics screening test since 2012. 

Please follow this link for further information about the programme and activities you could  use to help support your child in this area. 

In KS2, teachers follow the ‘Support for Spelling’ document which follows on from Letters and Sounds.

Phonics learning is fun and interactive throughout the school from Nursery upwards.  In EYFS and KS1, pupils receive a daily phonics session in addition to practising the skills in literacy lessons and throughout the curriculum. 

We also run exciting phonics clubs which take place at lunchtimes and after school. 

There are lots of wonderful websites to support children and parents at home.  Here is a selection of web links that we think are particularly useful.
