Read, Write Inc Phonics


Phonics is taught through discrete daily sessions from Foundation to Year Two and, in KS2, regular sessions are delivered where a need is identified. We follow the ‘Read, Write, Inc systematic programme.

Read Write Inc. Phonics is a DfE-validated systematic synthetic phonics programme with a whole-school approach to teaching early reading and writing. 

It teaches children to read accurately, fluently and with understanding, to spell, and to write their own compositions. 

This means that the children are taught the 44 phonemes (sounds) in the English language, linking letters or groups of letters with sounds. We use Read, Write, Inc. resources to support all our teaching. We endeavour to make learning phonics as practical, fun, engaging and memorable as possible for our children. 

Pupils are taught spelling strategies early on.
