Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised is the fastest-growing, Department for Education-validated phonics programme used by over 5,000 primary schools in the UK and internationally.

A growing number of Initial Teacher Training providers are also investing in our phonics programme to ensure new teachers are well-equipped with an evidence-informed understanding of quality first phonics teaching from the start of their career.

Our primary phonics programme is:

  • By schools for schools. Created by Chesterton Primary School (part of Wandle Learning Trust) and Little Sutton Primary School, every element of our programme is tried and tested by working teachers.
  • Effective. We regularly survey members about the impact of Little Wandle in their classrooms.
  • Supported by fully matched resources. Thanks to our partnership with Collins, Little Wandle Letters and Sounds Revised has a full range of matched decodable books and classroom resources.
  • Great value. As well as the core phonics programme for Reception and Key Stage 1, your annual membership subscription also includes Little Wandle Foundations (our Nursery phonics programme), Year 2 Spelling, Rapid Catch-up for use with children in Year 2 and above plus our SEND programme for children who need the graduated approach. You also have access to comprehensive teaching notes, guidance and training for our Little Wandle Fluency programme to use alongside Big Cat for Little Wandle books.
