Here at Cranberry Academy we have designed our Phonics lessons to ensure they are fully inclusive to every child. Our aims are to fulfil the requirements of the Development Matters Framework and The National Curriculum for reading and spelling; to ensure progressive development of comprehension and writing skills; and for the children to develop a love for reading.
