The principles share the key messages of effective phonics teaching and learning, built on solid foundational reading and writing skills through taking a developmental approach to Emerging Literacy.

The challenge questions have been created to support practitioners and schools in auditing their current approaches to phonics teaching, allowing them to reflect and plan for next steps. An audit tool has been created which practitioners and schools may find useful.
