Early Reading​​​​

It is our intent that phonics will be delivered via a highly structured programme of daily lessons. Holley Park Academy show fidelity to the Little Wandle: Letters and Sounds Revised validated programme. This is a full early reading programme incorporating daily phonic sessions and three weekly reading practice sessions. In Nursery pupils will start phonics by exploring the 'Foundations of Phonics' before starting phase 2 of the programme in reception. Children will continue the into Year 1. Please see the policy for how the Little Wandle programme is implemented. Should you wish to know more about the Early Reading curriculum at Holley Park Academy, please contact the Early Reading Lead via the school office.
