From the Early Years Foundation Stage phonics is taught discreetly each day. The programme used at Holy Cross is LCP (click here to access). The programme is taught throughout Keystage 1 and children are formally assessed at the end of Year 1. The test is a statutory test and results are collated nationally. To see how HolyCross's results compare with schools nationally click on the Parent menu tab, then click on "Ofsted Reports," finally clicking on "Inspection Dashboard Summary." The school's results have improved consistently over the past three years and will continue to do so this year.
Our children's results and readiness for reading can be hugely affected by your support. If you would like further Phonics information and how to support your child at home please see the links below:
