English Hub Phonic Showcases

A number of funded phonic showcases will be held at Blackpool’s very own St John Vianney English Hub during 2019.

We are delighted to announce that we will be running a series of funded showcases to show elements of best practice in the teaching of systematic synthetic phonics whilst promoting a love of reading.
