Phonics and Reading Schemes

At Sacred Heart, we do not rely on one individual reading scheme. We use a variety of schemes as we find that this enables us to meet the individual needs of our pupils and cater for their interests. Reading books are provided from a range of publishers including : Oxford Reading Tree, Project X, Heinemann, Oxford University Press and Rising Stars among others.

When teaching phonics, again, the school does not rely on one individual phonics scheme. We use a variety of schemes as we find that this enables us to meet the individual needs of our pupils. The phonics schemes used include: Letters and Sounds, Jolly Phonics and Fresh Start Phonics.
