At St Andrew's, our intent is to provide our children with a creative, captivating and challenging curriculum that equips them for today and tomorrow. In order to do this, we use the Cornerstones Curriculum.

Phonics Teaching at St Andrew's

We use the Read, Write Inc Phonics scheme to teach phonics.

Take a look at the Phonics website for ideas you can do at home to help.

Reading at St Andrew's

The main reading scheme we use is Accelerated Reader (AR). It is a reading management and monitoring programme that aims to foster independent reading. The internet-based software assesses reading age, and suggests books that match pupils' needs and interests. Pupils take computerised quizzes on the books and earn AR points as they progress.
