KS1 Literacy – Phonics without Tears

A look at how one school has used phonics to improve literacy A fresh start including phonics has helped Broadmead Infants School in Croydon pull itself round and get children reading, writing and enjoying books. Headteacher Alex Lundie was one of the sceptics, but when she took over the failing school and gave the Rose Report recommendations a chance, she saw achievement improve. We see Reception and Year 1 classes at work and hear how the key at Broadmead has been to see phonics as a tool to be used in the bigger project of literacy, rather than as an end in itself.
