English & Reading

Please find here our School Policy for English and the National Curriculum Framework for English. Miss Scaldwell, our Year 2 Class Teacher and Assistant Head, is the school Subject Lead for English. Please visit the class Topic Web pages to find out what each year group is studying in relation to Literacy.

At Garsington CE Primary School, we use Read, Write, Inc. as our core phonics and reading scheme throughout Key Stage One. Training by nationally recognised instructors has ensured that our teachers and TAs are equipped to deliver this highly effective programme.

As children progress, we use a range of reading schemes. These include Oxford Reading Tree, Treetops, Project X and Rigby Stars.
