Grove Park Primary School

Phonics & Reading

At Grove Park, we have built a very successful Systematic, Synthetic Phonics (SSP) programme that sits around the Letters and Sounds scheme; this approach has ensured that we consistently achieve strong phonics results for our pupils. Our programme aims to build children's speaking and listening skills in their own right as well as to prepare children for learning to read. It is a detailed and systematic programme for teaching phonic skills and helping children to become fluent readers. In the Early Years we also use the Jolly Phonics actions to support children’s understanding of phonics.
