Curriculum Overview

Equality, SEND & Our Curriculum

Inclusion sits at the heart of the teaching and learning policies at St. Philip's RC. As a school we have a strong focus on equality for all and this includes the provision for SEND pupils within our curriculum. Our Equality Policy and SEND Policy (please see links below) both detail our provision for teaching and learning at St. Philip's. We are currently mapping-out how our curriculum has been tailored to be inclusive for all learners. Please continue to check this area of the website for detailed updates.

Phonics & Reading

At St Philip’s RC Primary School we help your child to get ready for learning to read and write using phonics by developing their understanding that spoken words are made up of different sounds. Your child will take part in a high-quality phonics session every day in Nursery, Reception and Year 1 and 3-4 times a week in Year 2. These sessions are active and fun-filled with an emphasis on teaching the skills your child will need for reading and writing. The programme that we to help us to plan and teach high quality phonics sessions is called Letters and Sounds. This is a Government recommended scheme.
