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 Floreat we teach Sounds-Write in structured lessons in Nursery and Reception as well as Year 1. We achieve consistently outstanding results and our parents are amazed at how well their children can read and spell.
The training is top quality and all staff use consistent methods to teach phonics, reading and spelling effectively. Teachers love the clarity and effectiveness of the Sounds-Write programme and are highly motivated by the achievement and enjoyment of all learners. 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.”
Janet Hilary, Headteacher, National Leader of Education and Chief Executive Officer, Floreat Education
