Phonics and Early Reading

Ark Little Ridge Primary Academy



Our vision for our pupils as readers at Ark Little Ridge, is to provide equitable reading experiences for all pupils by ensuring we have expert teachers of reading throughout the school. We are committed to ensuring that the texts we provide reflect the diversity of the community in which we live and the wider world in which we all exist. We want our children to be inspired to see reading as a great pleasure, something to be enjoyed, and a gateway to opportunity and success in life.  

At Ark Little Ridge Primary Academy, we use the Read Write Inc. phonics program to deliver robust, targeted phonics teaching so that our children will have the best possible start to their reading journey. The partnership between home and school is fundamental in developing confident readers who can access a world of literacy.


To help you support your child’s phonics and reading development, we have provided information and resources that you can use at home below.
