Phonics & Reading


At Belmont, we use FFT’s Success for All Phonics programme, which is a complete Systematic Synthetic Phonics (SSP) programme validated by the Department for Education. Success for All Phonics provides 68 fully decodable reading books (Shared Readers), daily phonics and reading lesson plans, assessment tools, picture cards, mnemonics for letter formation and all other teaching resources needed to support the effective teaching of phonics from EYFS to the end of Year 1.

Developing A ‘Love of Reading’

At Belmont Community Primary School, we want our children to enjoy and love reading. We ensure they have access to a broad range of books from both narrative and non-narrative genres and have opportunities to read throughout the school day. Our teachers act as role-models and select engaging and exciting extended reading books which are shared during our reading time at the end of each school day. As part of the wider curriculum, we encourage regular exploration of supporting texts in all foundation subjects.
