At St Charles’ we believe there is no greater skill that we can teach a child than how to read fluently and for enjoyment, thus opening a world of endless learning possibilities and academic success.
Early reading is underpinned by good quality phonics teaching. Phonics is the process that is used to help children break down words into sounds, as well as building letter and word recognition. We believe that phonics provides the foundations of learning to make the development into fluent reading and writing easier.

We have a well designed and sequenced approach for teaching phonics across the school. This follows a clear, and consistent teaching strategy for all classes each term.
