Where All Our Pupils Shine

Contact Details



Here at Forton Primary School, it is our intention to inspire children to develop a passion of reading, unlocking the door to all future learning. This will enable our children to fluently communicate ideas and emotions both verbally and in reading.



We plan and deliver our phonics lessons following the 'Letters and Sounds' DFE Phonic Programme. We use relevant and specific intervention programmes for those children who require further support when reading. 



Our pupils progress through a range of quality texts that are ordered in phonetically appropriate stages for children who are learning their phonetic code. We use texts from Oxford Reading Scheme, TTS, Collins Big Cat, Song Birds and Bug Club, as well as some others. The reading scheme changes to a book banded system once they have learnt to read using the phonetic code.
