reading and phonics
At, St. Laurence's, our intent for reading is to foster a lifelong love for reading, enabling all pupils to become confident, enthusiastic, and independent readers. We believe that reading is the cornerstone of academic achievement and personal development, providing access to knowledge, cultural experiences, and enhancing well-being. Our intent is to create a positive reading culture that supports the holistic development of every child.
To meet the needs of our early readers, we use the DfE validated Unlocking Letters and Sounds phonics programme. The Unlocking Letters and Sound website shows sample resources and lessons if you'd like to find out more.
