Gemma Wilkes

Dudley, West Midlands

Gemma graduated with a BA(Hons) and a PGCE specialism in Early Years. During her time at university, Gemma came across Jolly Phonics and saw the potential of the programme in her teaching. She has taught in local primary schools for the past 18 years, as well as being Strategic Leader for EYFS, KS1 and English.

Gemma has used Jolly Phonics, and then Grammar during all of her teaching years. She has experience implementing the programmes in Reception, Year One, Two, Three, Four and Five in a number of schools across Early Years, KS1 and KS2. Jolly Phonics and Grammar has never ceased to amaze Gemma! “To think that a child can begin their formal education in September with little knowledge of reading, to becoming a reader and writer after just eight weeks is phenomenal” states Gemma. She believes that reading is the key to the world.

Gemma can offer support with setting up and implementing Jolly Phonics and Grammar in your school from Early Years through to KS2. This can include phonics training for teachers, teaching assistances and parents, alternative whole school Inset days, twilight sessions or specific training for individuals, year groups or phases.
