St Mark's CE Primary School

LET YOUR LIGHT SHINE

Welcome to St Mark's CE Primary School

ENGLISH

Our aim is that our children will be confident and competent readers and writers, by the time they leave St Mark's.  We believe that speaking and listening skills are key to the development of children's literacy skills, and we strive to create a language rich environment, to support the progress of all pupils.

In addition, we would like children to be keen and enthusiastic literacy learners who see reading and writing as pleasurable as well as useful.

We use the literacy framework to support the development, planning and teaching of literacy at St Mark's. You can find the statutory literacy programme of study at the Department for Education website. Here is the link:

HOW WE TEACH PHONICS 

At St Mark's, we strive to  establish consistent practice, progression and continuity in the teaching and learning of phonics and spelling throughout the school.  We differentiate phonics and spelling work according to the needs of pupils, so that pupils are given sufficient challenge at a level at which they can experience success.  

We use Read Write Inc to teach phonics.  Please click here for a  helpful link 

Our English and Phonics policies can be accessed via the Policies section of the website.
