Reading Reform Foundation (RRF) - Promoting Synthetic Phonics : Page Title

RRF Newsletter 46 back to contents
The Reading Reform Foundation is calling for:
  • Ofsted to report openly and accurately on synthetic phonics teaching in early years’ settings
  • replacement of the expensive and inappropriate end of Key Stage 1 English tests by simple and inexpensive standardised tests at the end of Reception, Year 1 and Year 2
  • scientific and open comparisons between the effectiveness of synthetic phonics teaching and NLS teaching in the early years
  • the dissemination of literacy teaching information by the DfEE and the LEAs regarding the results of reputable scientific assessment
  • synthetic phonics training provided, or facilitated, by the DfEE and the LEAs in addition to current NLS directives
  • amendment of the National Literacy Strategy in line with the most effective literacy teaching methods in the early years (synthetic phonics)
  • examination of literacy teaching methods promoted in the Teacher Training Establishments
  • transparent and consistent policies on the promotion/endorsement of commercial materials from Ofsted, the DfEE and LEAs
