Phonics

Due to the interrupted schooling that our pupils have faced before coming to Brantridge we find that lots of them have gaps in their phonetic knowledge. For this reason we have a focus on phonics across the school. When required pupils have daily phonics input based around the phase they are working at.

We follow the DfE letters and sounds model for teaching phonics. Click here for more information.

The communication between home and school is excellent.
