Our aim, at Burley and Woodhead Primary, is to develop respectful, resilient, confident children with a love of learning, who are ambitious future leaders of their local and global community. Our children are recognised in the local community and at their secondary school as kind, reflective, articulate citizens.
The six Burley Woodhead Me areas pull together all the aspects of a child’s personal, spiritual and academic development in our school. These are promoted widely and shared with families; our aim is to use a common language with the children, at home and school, to encourage positive behaviours and fabulous learning habits.
The school has a strong track record of ensuring that pupils make good progress from their starting points and a history of very high pupil attainment. Results show that reading, writing and maths have been significantly above the national average for a sustained period.
Our Six Burley Woodhead Learning Me areas can be accessed through the quick links on our home page.
Learning to Read
Our school teaches phonics through the Letters and Sounds programme and is one of eight DfE accredited Letters and Sounds training centres across England.
Children are introduced to a wide range of fiction and non-fiction texts through books and online ebooks published by Rising Stars and Collins Big Cat Phonics for Letters and Sounds. All books are arranged in a sequential order, mirroring the progression of sounds which are taught in phonics and early reading sessions.
As children progress through school, they are introduced to free choice of texts across different genres.
A guide to how we approach reading, and how you can help your child with reading, is set out below. Please speak to your child's class teacher if you have any questions about your child's reading development.
