What is FFT Success for All Phonics?
FFT Success for All Phonics is a complete systematic synthetic phonics (SSP) programme that has been validated by the Department for Education.
Aimed at nursery children upwards and pioneered by the Success for All Foundation, FFT’s second generation programme is offered on a not-for-profit basis and is a highly comprehensive offering.
Our ambition is to enable success for all children and inspire a lifelong love of reading.

Each step is small and achievable
We have found that this scheme really engages the children through clearly planned, progressive, achievable goals that make it possible for all children to succeed.
We have seen a huge improvement in the children's confidence and fluency as they begin to see themselves as a reader. Each step in the scheme is small and achievable building on prior learning, consolidating skills and allowing the children to master reading at each stage.
All the children being able to have the same book to take home allows the teaching to build over the course of the week and clear strategies to be taught. This creates confident, enthusiastic children who are keen to share their learning at home and consolidate further with fluency practice at home.

Removed a lot of the stress
It was daunting to have to change the way we teach phonics, but FFT Success for All Phonics removed a lot of the stress and workload for our staff.
The guides are easy to use; training is accessible, plentiful and broken into small manageable chunks; the reading resources have provided challenge for our children and the Parent Portal has been well-accessed to support learning to read at home. For those learners that find it hard to keep up, the Lightning Squad intervention is fun, engaging and progressive.

Our children have made real gains
After using Letters and Sounds for our phonics we have found the move to Success for All Phonics a smooth transition. We were able to access training prior to starting the scheme. The programme offers a clear planning and structure that teachers and assistants are able to follow.
The resources to support the programme (both hard copies and digital versions) offer good value for money and they are easily accessible for our learners. Our children have made real gains in their reading as a result of the daily reading planning that supports Phonics and having class sets of decodable picture books has been a real asset.
Beyond Key Stage 1 children are excited to use the Tutoring with the Lightning Squad platform, it has really captured the interest of children that would otherwise find reading a challenge.
