If someone you knew was considering coming on this course, what advice would you give them?

"Definitely go on it. Tells you everything you need to know about the code of English and the skills children need to access/use the code to read and spell. You will be a much better teacher for it."

A Gold Standard for Literacy

Sounds-Write is a quality first phonics programme, and is probably the finest system of literacy tuition in the English language. Details of the programme, and the reasons for its outstanding reputation, are set out on the page 'About Us'.

 

"I recommend Sounds-Write to every teacher and school leader I meet. At St. George’s, where deprivation levels are extremely high, we achieve consistently outstanding results in all phases. Our Phonics Screening Check has been 96%+ every year. Sounds-Write is a brilliant phonics programme for all pupils from Nursery but it also enables us to teach pupils with no English, or with specific learning difficulties so that no gaps exist in performance within year groups. It is a superb scheme for teaching polysyllabic spelling right through to Year 6. The training is top quality and all staff use consistent methods to teach phonics, reading and spelling effectively. Skills are taught explicitly and pupils demonstrate confidence and success from the outset. Progress is rapid and the quality of writing from Reception onwards astonishes visitors from other schools."
