Secure and solid phonic knowledge and skills are fundamental to success and developing fluency in reading. At Shibden Head we follow the First Class Phonics scheme in EYFS, Year 1 and Year 2. Rapid Phonics is used as an intervention from Year 3 for those children who have not passed the phonics check by the end of Key Stage 1, this is monitored carefully by the Phonics lead. Please see documents on the links below for more detail about our phonics programme.
