Worried about fidelity?

There's no need to be! The DfE have explained "what’s important is that schools take an approach that is rigorous, systematic, used with fidelity (any resources used should exactly match the Grapheme Phoneme Correspondence (GPC) progression of their chosen SSP approach), and achieves strong results for all pupils, including the most disadvantaged."

Why switch to Bug Club Phonics?

Bug Club Phonics is a DfE validated phonics programme with an accessible and inclusive teaching approach at its heart. The authors of Bug Club Phonics were also the authors of the seven-year Clackmannanshire study that proved systematic synthetic phonics to be the most effective way to teach children to read.

Bug Club Phonics offers a fully resourced systematic synthetic phonics programme based on a proven progression that enables you to teach with flexibility and fidelity.
