What is Read Write Inc?
We are a Read Write Inc school. Read Write Inc was first created by Ruth Miskin in 2002. It is the UK’s leading synthetic phonics programme. Read Write Inc. is for children from Reception onwards, and children with SEND in older year groups.
Read Write Inc supports children to climb higher rungs of the fluency ladder. This is achieved by accelerating reading accuracy and developing comprehension and later on Guided Reading groups taught through the Literacy Leaves curriculum.
Read Write Inc supports the teaching of reading and writing so that it is rigorous and consistent.
Read Write Inc. Phonics provides pupils of all ages with the skills and knowledge they need to read and spell.
Pupils can be taught in a group using Read Write Inc. Phonics, or individually following Fast track tutoring. This breaks down Read Write Inc. phonics into small, incremental steps to help pupils who need extra support – including those who have SEN/D.
Although pupils are taught in small cumulative steps, lessons are well-paced, engaging and motivating.
Pupils are taught new sounds each week, but importantly review previous sounds and words until they can read them confidently – and in closely matched decodable texts.
Assessment matches these steps, so progress can be recognised and celebrated.
