We have been delighted with the impact of the Sounds-Write programme. Our children have made very good progress in reading and writing and we believe this rigorous programme has been key to raising standards of literacy. Having introduced Sounds-Write at my previous school and seen first hand the enormous benefits, I had no hesitation in introducing this progamme at Priory Rise. Sounds-Write makes sense and this is the comment most frequently offered by parents and staff.
