Ms S Heathfield
Ms Heathfield is our Key Stage One Literacy Interventions Teacher. Her main role is delivering our Reading Recovery Programme. This is an individualised, targeted and very effective programme of one to one reading and writing lessons each day. This is mainly offered to children in Year One and lasts about one and a half terms. The programme builds children's confidence in both reading and writing and also develops their enjoyment of learning. Here at St Paul's we believe that reading is an essential life skill and our aim is that all children supported by this programme develop into confident readers. We want them to learn to read both for pleasure and to develop the reading skills which, of course, are a crucial part of accessing the rest of the curriculum. Ms Heathfield also coordinates and delivers the TELL (Teaching Early Language and Literacy) Phonics Intervention in Key Stage One. She oversees the Better Reading Programme, a reading intervention in Key Stage Two. If anyone has any queries or concerns about reading at any time please call in and Ms Heathfield will gladly help if she can.
