St Aloysius Catholic Primary School Together with Jesus, we Love, Learn and Believe

English Support


We currently use the 'Read Write Inc' programme to teach phonics. This is started in the Foundation Stage and continued into KS1, where the children are grouped to enable a more targeted approach. It is also continued in Lower KS2 through intervention groups.


For support with teaching your child phonics at home using the Read Write Inc approach, please speak to Miss Harrison.


We use the Oxford Reading Tree Scheme across school and we also have a range of additional books to offer variety.


We listen to the children read as often as possible and also have intervention programs in place. These include

  • Thriving reader program -  To build reading stamina and confidence
  • Code-X - To build comprehension and focus on boys enjoyment of reading
  • Daily readers


Please ensure your child reads daily at home. Thank you for your support.
