It is our pleasure to announce that we are now an 'All Aboard Phonics' school! We have taken part in a pilot study with our children with a number of different phonics schemes and our children really loved this scheme!

Some of the main reasons which our children preferred this scheme were:

  • Lively, interactive 'poem' based sound teaching.
  • Actions for each sound to encompass the visual, auditory and kinaesthetic elements of inclusive teaching.
  • Real-life images are used in the decodable books which promote better language development at home and in school.

The following is taken directly from the All Aboard Website and highlights the main benefits of the system.


Our main phonics programme is full of strong visual cues for the phonics. They engage the children and our general nautical theme leads to a lot of easy fun for the children. Only engaged children learn optimally and these lessons allow most of the children to progress well in these mainstream group sessions.


 There are usually a few children in each class who find progress harder and struggle to keep up. Then our unique intervention process is the key for you to assess and support those children. 


Our particular expertise at All Aboard Learning is how to help those children in each class who find phonics hard. You can see comments from teachers and parents who we have worked with on our Easyread Facebook page. You can also see the independent academic study of our intervention processes here.

In our All Aboard Phonics Plus manual you will have a simple evaluation process to determine what is causing the difficulty for a child. That will then set what the individualised education plan needs to be for that child.

Moving from good to excellent results in literacy is driven by how you help these struggling learners. We can partner with you to aim for 100% success each year.


Decodable Books

We have a complete set of short decodable books that integrate with the curriculum, week by week. We will send you examples of our books in our sample pack of materials and you can read more here.

I think you will find our books have a fresh new set of stories and nonfiction subjects, with beautiful illustrations and images. We have tried to make them entertaining for the adult as well as the learner.

We print them with very large text to help the children who have difficulties focusing on small text. That means they can also be used in small group settings as presentation books.
