Spelling: development beyond phonics
When should children be taught correct rather than phonetic spelling? We refer to the National Curriculum for English, which has guidance on spelling and phonics. You will also find guidance from a primary school practitioner and a spelling policy from a school.
- DfE guidance on spelling
- Spelling in the English programmes of study
- Progressing from phonics: example from a school
- Stages of learning to spell
