Rapid Phonics

A vital part of reading is phonics acquisition - the ability to decode unknown words on the page, until reading becomes an automatic process.  If your child requires extra phonics provision/intervention in order to progress to the next stage of their reading journey, they will follow the Rapid Phonics programme – a proven intervention approach for Year 2-6 children where gaps in their phonic and reading knowledge have been identified. It contains dyslexia-friendly features approved by the British Dyslexia Association. The programme will include regular sessions with an adult in school. Each child who takes part in the Rapid Phonics programme will be issued with a fully decodable book, linked to their developing phonics needs. This book will be used in each intervention session and also within a daily, designated reading slot called ‘Reading Practice.’
