At Corpus Christi, our aim is that every child will learn to read, regardless of their background, needs or ability. Our children learn to read and write effectively and quickly using the Read Write Inc. Phonics programme. They progress onto learning through Read Write Inc. Literacy and Language once they can read with accuracy and speed.


Successful and effective teaching of phonics and early reading enables our children to form a firm foundation in literacy, from which they can develop excellent vocabulary and cultivate a love of reading that can last a lifetime. At Corpus Christi, we recognise that reading is part of the curriculum and a pathway to learning and accessing the rest of our broad and balanced curriculum; but in our school, it is also something that our children love.


Our children become successful readers thanks to the additional reading they do at home with parents; using Read Write Inc. storybooks, Bug Club books and individually selected books from the school library and class book corners.
