Stokes Wood Primary School teaches phonics from the nursery class using the Knowledge Transfer Centre ( KTC) approach which is a whole class approach to teaching phonics. Reading is also taught using the KTC approach using whole class shared reading and guided reading ability groups. A range of books are used for guided reading which are benchmarked using the PM scheme. The school also uses Accelerated Reader for pupils' individual reading which is a library scheme which encourages children to read a range of books and genre through quizzes and rewards.

A message and invitation to our parents/carers and wider family members and friends

You are all most welcome to take part in any way you can, in the learning of your child.

Please feel welcome to offer your support in classrooms, reading with children in school, attending focus days, assemblies and school visits.

We also encourage you to support your children at home, especially in reading. Evidence shows that children, who read regularly and if possible, daily at home with an adult, achieve considerably better than children who don’t. This can be the adult reading to their child or child reading to the adult, or even better: both!!

Parents and carers are so important to your child’s future success. Please get involved in how ever you can and if you are not sure of the best way to do this, ask your child’s teacher or Mrs. Gadsby. They will be delighted to help.

No Outsiders

Please find attached information on a new part of the curriculum called No Outsiders.

  

‘No Outsiders’ is an exciting new part of our curriculum.  Being a ‘No Outsiders’ school means that we celebrate diversity and are committed to the principles of inclusion and equality.  It is a primary aim of our school that every member of the school community feels valued and respected.  We are a caring community where whole school values are built on mutual trust and respect for all, regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, gender identity, disability, age or gender.  The ‘No Outsiders’ project fulfils our duty to promote diversity and prepares your children for life in modern Britain.  ‘No Outsiders’ is British Law and supports the Equality Act to ensure that everybody is treated equally and without prejudice.  There are several other Leicester City and County schools taking part in the No Outsiders project, as well as other schools throughout the UK.

No Outsiders is part of our Personal, Social, Health and Emotional (PSHE) curriculum and will be taught through a series of picture books addressing the different areas of the Equality Act. 

If you would like to look at the books, you would be most welcome. Please ask at the school office and Mrs Gadsby, Mr Brown or Mr Hill will get back to you and arrange a time convenient for you.
