Learning Support and Programmes
To make sure our children are reaching their abilities we have a number of intervention programmes to support learning.
Yolanda Soryl - Early Words
The Early Words programme teaches children at their level, one to one, in a short daily fun lesson where not only a basic sight vocabulary is learnt, but children learn how to learn.
Yolanda Soryl - Phonics
To be able to decode, children need a range of basic phonics strategies so they can easily work out new words in reading and spelling.
Firstly, they need to have good phonological awareness and be able to hear and discriminate sound, and hear rhyme and rhythm, alliteration and sound breaks. They need to be able to hear, read and write the phonemes of the English language. And they need to be skilled in blending and segmenting these phonemes for use in reading and spelling.

The Quick60 is a prevention/intervention programme that ensures student success by:
- basing the programme on scientifically proven research into literacy acquisition and development
- putting the essential learning into the books that the students will read, and,
- providing explicit lessons plans so that teachers can effectively deliver the programme.
