Phonics

The phonics teaching at Hersden is planned from the DFE "Letter and Sound" document. 

Synthetic phonics teaching is used to support reading and spelling throughout the school.

Each June Year 1 children sit the National Phonics Screening Test. In 2016 93.3% of the Year 1 cohort at Hersden Village Primary School passed the test, this is 12.8% above the national average.
