Phonics Trajectory at OLASP

We follow a fast-paced and ambitious trajectory for success in phonics, to enable our children to reach expected milestones in learning to read and write, from their earliest days in Nursery through to Year 2.


Rigorous teaching in phonics means that never a day is missed, and children enjoy fun, fast daily phonics lessons, based on the progression of sounds set out in letters and sounds and in line with our own expectations within our trajectory. 


In phonics we aim to ensure that children 'keep up, not catch up' wherever possible and their progress within and across the six phonics phases is tracked closely, in order to identify and address any gaps effectively.
