Phonic and Reading Schemes used in Key Stage 1

Highfield Primary school’s phonic teaching follows the Scheme of "Floppy's Phonics" by Oxford University Press.  We have a very current well resourced reading scheme stock of books and invested £10,000 in new reading scheme books in 2021. For children in Reception and Key Stage One books are organised  to match the phonic phases of teaching with clear progression identified.
