Get reading. Keep reading. Change everything.
Are you passionate about your child becoming a successful reader?
Here at Bethersden Primary School we are dedicated to delivering an excellent reading provision. We are so passionate in believing that every child should learn to read confidently, independently, enthusiastically and competently in life from a very young age. At Bethersden Primary School we have developed our own approach to teaching phonics called Reading, Writing Excellence. This takes the best features of many available schemes (including Read, Write Inc) but is used in a flexible way to suit the pace of the children. Results are extremely positive with 95.27% of our Year 1 children reaching the expected level in the end of year screening check in 2018.
