Essential Letters and Sounds
At Harting C of E Primary School we use Essential Letters and Sounds (ELS) to teach phonics. This is complete systematic synthetic phonics scheme that has been validated by the Department for Education.  
We have fidelity to ELS which ensures that learning experiences the children receive are consistent across the school. As part of this scheme, children are taught through the use of fully decodable texts which follow the progression of sounds set out in the ELS scheme. 
Please see further details of the scheme and chosen approach in the parent presentation below.
