At Newbury Primary School we follow a structured literacy approach, backed by the Science of Reading. Students participate in 15 hours of English instruction per week. This consists of PhOrMeS, AUSLAN, speaking and listening, reading and writing lessons.


Daily PhOrMeS sessions, using evidence from the ‘Science of Reading’ and ‘Science of Learning’, is taught across Years Prep to 6 to target phonemic awareness, decoding and spelling, handwriting and reading fluency.


A knowledge-rich curriculum, supported by QUEST topics, provides students with multiple opportunities to develop comprehension skills.
