We are a Ruth Miskin Phonics School. We follow RWI and use RWI reading books which are both both fiction and nonfiction.
We are also an English Hub School.
In total, there are 34 English Hubs around the UK, based in schools chosen by the Department for Education (DfE) due to the quality of their teaching in areas around phonics and engagement in reading in Reception and Year 1 teaching.
In the first year they launched (2018), English Hub schools provided showcases to schools who would travel in (covered by funding from the Hub school) to learn more about best practice for teaching phonics and general reading and writing engagement.
Since then, their remit has expanded to be able to visit schools to help “audit” their provision in these areas and offer advice based on lesson observations.
