At Pevensey and Westham we recognise that learning to read opens up a world of opportunities for children.  To support you with helping your child to read at home, please click here for our Guide for Parents and Carers.

To support phonics and reading in Key Stage 1, we use the Read Write Inc phonics programme. Please follow the links below for more information.
