Our school has committed to Lancashire’s year of reading in 2018 and made the following pledge:
During the year of reading, we are committed to:
Becoming a reading school.
Seeking out every opportunity to improve standards in reading within our school. Encouraging reading for pleasure.
Enabling children to read in depth in a wide range of subjects, deepening their knowledge and understanding across the curriculum.
Working with other schools, our local library and other partners to promote reading as a life-long skill.
Join us in making this year an exciting one; let’s get reading!
Our curriculum at St Ignatius’ Catholic Primary School aims to develop the whole child and foster a love of learning and curiosity to enable our pupils to leave us as confident, mature young people. Through love of God and of one another we develop a safe learning environment where children can become active learners and critical thinkers.
We work within the guidelines of National Curriculum 2014, and follow the schemes of work recommended by Lancashire County Council to deliver a creative curriculum. We tailor these topics to meet the unique needs of all our pupils.

Phonics is delivered daily in our school, across EYFS, Y1 and Y2. We also provide daily phonic interventions for KS2 children who need the additional support.
The scheme used is the DFE recommended publication: Letters and Sounds.
