Phonics and Reading
In September 2019 we changed the organisation and resourcing of phonics teaching. We predominantly teach phonics using the resources produced by 'Read,Write,Inc.' We look forward to seeing the rapid progress that children make with their early reading as a result.
Reading has been overhauled ready for September 2019. We use resources from a number of reading schemes and have just purchased £5,000 of new books so that children have books matched to their abilities and interests. Reading is taught 'whole class', individually and sometimes in small groups, according to children's needs. Class teachers regularly hear children read individually.
We have re-invented curriculum to ensure that children receive a broad and balanced programme across their time at Manford.
Details of our curriculum aims and content can be found here:
Mrs L James is our curriculum lead and assistant Headteacher. If you would like more information about our curriculum you should speak to your child's teacher. Alternatively Mrs James can be contacted through the school office.
At Manford, Keeping children safe is at the heart of everything we do. We have mapped out our safeguarding opportunities across the school in this document:
