Free online videos: Debbie Hepplewhite on synthetic phonics


  • Debbie has crafted magic, creating an approach to phonics that - put simply -  works! Adopting Floppy's Phonics Sounds and Letters in 2011, we were delighted that 70% of our Y1 pupils secured the pass rate. In 2013, this has risen to 93%, and KS1 standards in reading, writing (and maths!) are up as the children are engaged, focused, motivated learners. This isn't about phonics - it's a pedagogical approach based on expectation, challenge, autonomy and rigour. The kids love it - and so do the staff!
