Read all about it – school in top 2 per cent

In his letter, Mr Gibb says: “Your excellent teaching of phonics is something I hope to see replicated across the country – decoding skills are the foundations for pupils to progress to reading fluently.
“With 100 per cent of pupils at St Mary’s reaching or exceeding the pass mark in the check, your school is in the top two per cent of all primary schools in the country. Your success in teaching phonics and early reading so effectively means your pupils are developing a firm foundation in literacy.”
In an endeavour to replicate this level of success that some schools are able to achieve, the Department for Education in England has established 34 'English Hubs'). These schools are centres of excellence and outreach to regional 'partner schools' that seek further support - both financially and professionally.
