Preston Primary School

Learning together, we grow kind hearts and healthy minds


Learning to read is the most important thing your child will learn at our school. Everything else depends on it, so we put as much energy as we possibly can into making sure that every single child learns to read as quickly as possible.

We want your child to love reading- and want to read for themselves. We put all our efforts into making sure they develop a love of books as well as simple learning to read.


In the Foundation Stage and key stage 1, phonics is taught systematically using the Read Write Inc scheme. This progresses into year 3 where phonic knowledge continues to underpin the teaching of spelling.  Grammar, punctuation and spelling will be taught in line with the national curriculum, building on the phonics teaching.
