Research on Bug Club Phonics

The study was published in 2018, but I've only just found out about it, through Rhona Johnston. She herself had only just become aware of it, despite the fact that the Bug Club programme was based on the Clackmannanshire study which she and Joyce Watson carried out.

Information about the selection of schools shows that all schools must have been in England, and the date of the study means that all must also have been subject to England's official synthetic phonics policy. The control group, however, would have been using programmes other than Bug Club. It would be very useful if more publishers would do such research.
