approachis that practice across the school is completelyconsistent. This is achieved because theheadteacher, all the teachers and teachingassistants, from the Foundation Stage to Year 6,are trained to teach reading.This means that everyone has a sharedunderstanding of the ‘Simple View of Reading’,how letters and sounds in English are related(the alphabetic code), and how to teach allchildren to read and write.After the training, the

managercoaches the teachers and teaching assistants sothat everyone is then teaching as effectively andas consistently as possible. The headteacher andthe

manager monitor progresstogether until every child can read. No child is leftbehind to struggle.
A consistent approach
