The Village Academy

The Village Academy is a group of town, city and village schools that have joined together to provide the very best education for the children in our care and where we believe that education is very much a matter of the individual.

 English is not taught as one subject at Lynsted and Norton school. Instead it is seen as a blend of a range of skills learnt in phonics, reading, speaking and listening and writing.

 From September 19 we have reintroduced systems to ensure that these skills are learn progressively and children build upon prior knowledge. This progression starts from when the children are in Pixie class and sharing books and writing in the sand etc and continues throughout a child's time in school. We are also reviewing our handwriting policy which should be in place by November 19.

 For how we teach the skills within English please look at our Reading, phonics and writing pages.
