Phonics Resources for Parents


At St. Thomas More CVA we recognise the importance of a strong home-school partnership. We want to provide parents with the information and resources needed so that they are able to support their children successfully at home.

Supporting your child in phonics and early reading is one of the most important ways you can help your child as they begin their learning journey at St. Thomas More
