Curriculum and Key Stages

At Ilchester we aim to provide a broad and balanced curriculum for all our students. Below is a set of links to inform you of the areas of learning covered. This list is not exhaustive  (teachers, and children, are always keen to respond to local and world events in their learning) but does provide a framework for teaching and learning at Ilchester.

Phonics at Ilchester Community Primary School

Phonics is the correspondence between spoken sound (phoneme) and the written letter (grapheme).  In our school we use the Letters and Sounds Government recommended scheme as the basis for our teaching.
