At Brampton Primary School we aim for children to develop a love of reading and writing.

The teaching of literacy in EYFS and KS1:

Our pupils learn to read and write effectively and quickly using the Read Write Inc. Phonics programme.

The programme is for:

  • pupils in Year R to Year 2 who are learning to read and write
  • any pupils in Years 2, 3 and 4 who need to catch up rapidly.


We teach pupils to:

­   decode letter-sound correspondences quickly and effortlessly, using their phonic knowledge and skills

­   read ‘tricky’ words on sight

­   understand what they read

­   read aloud with fluency and expression

­   write confidently, with a strong focus on vocabulary and grammar

­   spell quickly and easily by segmenting the sounds in words

­   acquire good handwriting.
