Spelling at Oakham 

Our Ethos


We strive to make the teaching of spelling both enjoyable and purposeful. It is our hope that no child will leave school with gaps in their spelling knowledge but instead embark on the next steps along their educational journey full of confidence and ambition. Our aims include:


  • embedding knowledge
  • developing personal spelling strengths
  • stimulating curiosity about word discovery
  • promoting responsible application during independent learning
  • testing playing a reduced role
  • developing vocabulary
  • removing fear
