‘I would definitely recommend the programme. Excellent support from Lesley when you need it and extra sessions offered. Active lesson activities that the children are engaged in. Memorable songs for spelling tricky words which even the lowest 20% of readers/spellers have remembered!’
Phonics Lead, West London Primary School (had an outstanding OFSTED in 2023)
"Lesley's thorough and engaging SSP has no doubt had a positive impact on the literacy skills of pupils at our school and helped our children to become both motivated and confident readers and writers. The quality CPD and expertise that Lesley provides has built up the confidence of our staff and this, with the support of detailed planning, resources and teaching notes, has not only saved time, but improved the consistency of phonics-teaching at our school and therefore the quality of teaching and learning. We are very happy with this programme and highly recommend to all"

The programme has been written by Lesley Clarke using the knowledge and experience aquired over 25+ years as an infant class teacher (12 of which included teaching LaS 2007 in both Reception and Y1) and 20+ years as a literacy consultant (over 14 of which have been spent helping schools to effectively teach phonics using LaS 2007). Find out more about Lesley here.
If you are interested in finding out more about the programme, Lesley can run a free online information session for your school. These generally last an hour and provide further details on the programme and an opportunity to ask questions. Please contact me to arrange a convenient time.
