Southfield Junior School

  • "This is a good school. Southfield is calm and orderly, but has a 'buzz' of activity. Leaders have set out clear and high expectations. Teachers have the secure knowledge of the curriculum to be able to challenge pupils." - Ofsted 2019

Phonics and Reading

At Southfield, we use the nationally recognised ‘Letters and Sounds’ approach to teaching phonics and build on the great progress children make at Eastrop.

The majority of pupils read fluently. The school provides guidance so pupils know which books to read according to their ability and this builds effectively on prior learning.

We use the popular Read Write Inc. resources to deliver successful catch up and intervention programmes for children who need them.
