 Supersonic Phonic Friends - Phonics at Lever Edge

Here at Lever Edge, staff and pupils follow the very exciting and engaging phonics scheme 'Supersonic Phonic Friends'.  Supersonic Phonic Friends is an enchanted adventure of phonics where along the way children will meet several friendly woodland characters who represent each literacy skill involved. Supported by the children's new 'Supersonic friends' and rhyming captions and phrases, this approach will ensure children develop confidence and apply each skill to their own reading and writing.  Meet the characters, explore the benefits and have a look at the links and videos below to find out more about our phonics scheme.

 Monitoring, Assessment and Tracking


  • Half termly assessments have been provided by the Phonics Lead (End of each term for Nursery pupils). Results of this are passed to the phonics lead for analysis.
  • The phonics lead will provide opportunities to be observed as lead practitioner and may observe other colleagues as needs are identified.
  • Phonics training and updates form part of the PDM planning cycle. Staff new to phonics will be given support by the phonics lead and may be signposted to further relevant training, if appropriate.
