    Hi Helen,

    I’m in a 2-19 SEND school and I was literacy lead (and did my MA dissertation at the time on the subject of curriculum appropriateness ) and a lot of the research I found pointed out that if they haven’t grasped phonics by secondary school what was the point in still trying. The students time was much better spent on other skills.
    Peter imray writes a lot about it, also see “the Rochford report”, Mike scissons also good to look at.

    However If you’re meaning in a mainstream secondary that could be completely different therefore ignore my above waffle! Sorry!

    Hopefully that helps, good luck with the award.
