Year 1 Success

..... and yet more success in the primary phase of George Mitchell All-Through School!

In Year 1 the phonics test showed an improvement from 2012 to 2013 from 37% of our pupils working at or above the level to 81%. How amazing is that and all down to a lot of hard work by both our pupils and staff, using a phonics programme developed by Ruth Miskin.  (Please see Curriculum/KS1 Phonics tabs for more information).

 

Ruth Miskin is so pleased with our success that she has asked if we can be used as a case study with Oxford University – and of course we have said YES!
