William Lilley Infant and Nursery School


 All children have a daily phonics session in which we follow the Letters and Sounds programme and supplement with resources from other schemes, such as the use of Jolly Phonics actions. 

Children all learn the appropriate phonics phase according to the National expectations.  If children need additional catch up phonics sessions, these are taught in small intervention groups. 

 Children’s progress is tracked regularly and lessons are personalised to meet the needs of all learners.
