I am delighted to let you know that we have received a letter from Rt Hon Nick Gibb MP (Minister of State for School Standards) to inform us that Sinai Jewish Primary School is in the top 3% of all primary schools in the country for Phonics.
“We know that reading sparks imagination and creativity as well as teaching children how to cope with a range of emotions and strengthen social skills. All our children, from Nursery to year 6, take reading books home and we recently signed up to the online reading programme, Bug Club. We are also bucking the trend of closing libraries and installing a library bus in our playground. Our passion for instilling a love of reading is clearly paying off and I am delighted to have improved from a top 6% school to top 3% in our phonics screening test.”
Mrs Lipshaw, Headteacher
