Meet Faye our Phonics Stars™️ for Porstmouth & Chichester
Hello, My name is Faye Clarke and I am the licensed Phonics Stars™️ class leader for Portsmouth & Chichester. I live in Havant with my husband and two little boys.
I have been a Primary School Teacher for over 12 years and have been working as part of the Senior Leadership Team for the past 5 years where, as the English Leader, I was responsible for improving reading and writing across the school. I am extremely passionate about children learning to read and write and believe that phonics plays a huge role in underpinning the skills needed to become independent in reading and writing.
After having my son, I decided that I was ready for a new challenge! In becoming a licensed Phonics Stars™️ Class leader, I have been able to spend more quality time with my family yet still do something I’m extremely passionate about; delivering quality teaching to children.
As a parent and experienced teacher, I understand that we always want to give our children the best possible opportunities to prepare them for their future lives. I also understand the ever increasing demands and expectations being placed upon young children throughout their school career.
I truly believe that Phonics Stars™️ gives children a gentle introduction to the skills needed when entering school. It is not only fully linked to the Early Years Foundation Stage and Letters and Sounds, but is also packed full of fun, engaging and interactive activities which prepare children for all aspects of learning, and supports their physical, social and emotional development by learning through play.
