Shaftesbury Junior School

We care, we share, for the future we prepare


At Shaftesbury, we follow the Read Write Inc. Phonics scheme to support our children who are still at the early stages of reading (English as an additional Language; special needs). We follow Read Write Inc. Phonics as it is a structured programme to ensure all children learn to read accurately and fluently. This is to help beginning readers understand how letters are linked to sounds (phonemes) to form letter-sound correspondences and spelling patterns and to help them learn how to apply this knowledge in their reading.
