Nick Gibb MP, Minister of State for School Reform, has written to us for a second year running to congratulate us on our very high standard of achievement in the 2015 phonics check.

"With 100% of pupils at Ark Globe Academy reaching or exceeding the pass mark in the check, your school is in the top 2% of all primary schools in the country" Said Nick Gibb MP in his letter.

Our aim within our primary school is that every child should enjoy reading; both for life skills and pleasure. Our children learn to read through a synthetic phonics programme (Read, Write Inc). This programme is complemented with a range of reading comprehension activities.
