Welcome to our school - full of happy, hard-working children and teachers. We want every child to participate fully, respect other people, be independent and determined in achieving excellence.
Common exception words are words that are not to be sounded out. Children are expected to read these words from sight. These words can also be found in the back of the orange reading diary.
