The school is included in the Ofsted report Reading by Six as one of 12 schools identified as demonstrating exemplary practice and outstanding achievement and hosts many coaching sessions for teachers.

Head teacher, Cherry Edwards said: “We have had school leaders and phonics teachers coming from as far afield as Australia to see the phonics programme in action at Bourne Abbey.

“Indeed, next week we are receiving visitors from three Lincolnshire schools.”

Bourne Abbey has been using the programme for eight years.

Literacy leader Karen Smith said: “In our school every teacher is an expert at teaching reading.”

Teachers come to the school to see the programme being taught, to discuss its impact on learning and to gain advice on its implementation and organisation.
