My child is in KS2 but still struggles with phonics. What will happen now?

All children learn at different paces and at Copnor we understand that some children may need a little extra support when it comes to phonics. Through our embedded transition programme between KS1 and KS2 and regular assessments, children who may need extra phonics are identified early and targeted support is put in place either in the form of 1:1 support or small group work. The phonics programme which we use means that we can closely monitor your child’s progress and adapt the teaching to meet the needs of every individual. Your child’s class teacher will speak to you if they feel they would benefit from this support.

If you do have any concerns about your child’s phonics knowledge please don’t hesitate to contact their class teacher or to speak to a member of the English team.
