In England's context, there are lots of questions arising with 'What's happening about Letters and Sounds?'

Abigail Steel and I address a lot of issues around Letters and Sounds specifically, phonics provision and the need to make fully informed choices if considering a change of programme and practice.

This webinar is only an hour long, but it is interesting and even relevant beyond England's shores!

Schools in other countries, particularly Australia, use Letters and Sounds (DfES, 2007) as their schools' phonics programme:

With all the developments in England's scenario, I'm being approached by many teachers and headteachers to talk about my phonics programmes and to describe their similarities and differences.

To support with explanations, Carl Pattison suggested we provide a video of a discussion about my rationale and the differences between 'No Nonsense Phonics' (Raintree) and my online 'Phonics International' programmes:

And here is more information comparing NNP, PI and my Floppy's Phonics (Oxford University Press) programmes:

Here is some background via The Naked Emperor about developments in England and the resurgence of interest in systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) programmes:

We've had some really important developments in England for the teaching of foundational literacy.

The Department for Education (DfE) and Minister of State for School Standards, Nick Gibb, have published a new 'reading framework' today (10th July 2021) along with the latest list of newly DfE-validated 'Systematic Synthetic Phonics' programmes.

I describe my personal response after many years of campaigning in this field for evidence-informed reading instruction to these significant developments:
