Statutory framework for the early years foundation stage (



Children in Reception are encouraged to bring their reading books and Reading Record into school daily. Reading books will be changed once records are ticked and initialed that the book has been read.

Each child has a ‘Teach Your Monster to Read’ log in. This can be accessed for free on a desktop/laptop (or £5 to download the app on a phone/tablet). Children are encouraged to access this for 20 minutes daily via the following link.

​At Oxbridge our pupils are taught phonic and reading skills using Jolly Phonics. Staff teach the 5 skills from the Jolly Phonics Programme and this is delivered in an engaging and multi-sensory way. All staff are encouraged to teach in a creative way, but ensure that each lesson gives children opportunities to review previous learning, be taught a new sound, practise and apply. Please review the English section of the website to review the progression for teaching phonics English | Oxbridge Lane

National Assessments: Reception Baseline Assessment

The purpose of the reception baseline assessment is to provide an on-entry assessment of pupil attainment to be used as a starting point from which a cohort-level progress measure to the end of key stage 2 (KS2) can be created.
