Alanbrooke Academy is currently using Read Write Inc SSP. Phonics Programme but transitioning to ELS at the end of this term


At Alanbrooke Academy we are determined that every child learns to read and it is central to everything we do.

We are currently transitioning from Read Write Inc to Essential Letters and Sounds as our SSP validated phonics programme as this fits with our philosophy of Keep Up not Catch Up with interventions in the moment.  This ensures that no child gets left behind.
