Limehouse primary school wins award for teaching methods

PUBLISHED: 17:44 22 October 2012

A Limehouse primary school has been named as a “model school” by a government scheme set up to monitor how effectively youngsters are being taught to read.

Cyril Jackson Primary, in Limehouse Causeway, uses an education system called phonics, which teaches young pupils how to sound words out. The method is designed to teach pupils how to read, as well as teaching them various spelling patterns simultaneously.

The school was awarded “model school” status last month by education expert Ruth Miskin, OBE, a member of the government’s National Curriculum Review Advisory Committee.

A spokesman for the school said: “As one of only a small number of schools given the award, it is a true testament to the teaching excellence and resultant progress pupils are making with their reading.”
