Two experts discuss how phonics supports early reading and what the high-quality teaching of early reading looks like in practice.

We ask what a high-quality phonics programme should offer schools and how we can ensure maximum impact with the scheme we are using.

How can we move pupils from learning to read to reading to learn and how can we instil and inspire a love of reading in our pupils to last a lifetime?

Elsewhere, we ask what Ofsted inspectors look for when they judge reading and phonics teaching in primary schools and dissect what an ambitious and enriching reading curriculum looks like.

Finally, we discuss how we can engage parents in the process of phonics and early reading and what kind of advice we can offer to families to help them support reading at home.
