We are proud to support the principles of ECaR
ECaR is an early intervention Literacy programme, the aim of which is to provide appropriate intervention for children to ensure that all are working at age appropriate levels by the end of key stage 1.
As part of this, Mrs Flewitt, a specially trained Reading Recovery teacher, works closely on a one to one basis to achieve accelerated progress in reading, usually with Year 1 or 2 children. She has cascaded her skills out to TAs who are now working with children in ChIRP (Chartham Intensive Reading Partnership); a lighter touch programme which boosts reading potential and is based upon the best principles of Reading Recovery and Better Reading Partnerships (more detail below in reading support section).
Mrs Flewitt supports all teaching staff where need is identified.
