Phonics at Sutton Park School 

Our Systematic Synthetics Phonics Programme is ELS (Essential Letters and Sounds). The aim of ELS is to get children to read well, quickly. 

Children begin to learn Phonics from Reception and it is taught every day.

Children are taught to read by identifying the smallest unit of sound (phonemes) and the written version of the sound (graphemes). 

We follow the ELS progression and sequence. This enables our children to build their knowledge and understanding, so that they can become more fluent and independent readers.
