Read Write Inc. is a synthetic phonics programme used from Nursery to Year 2 that is underpinned by the ‘Simple View of Reading'. It teaches children how to understand written language and how to decode it – together.
A key element of the Read Write Inc. approach is that practice across the school is completely consistent. This is achieved because the head teacher, all the teachers and teaching assistants, from the Foundation Stage to Year 6 are trained to teach reading. This means that everyone has a shared understanding of the ‘Simple View of Reading’, how letters and sounds in English are related (the alphabetic code), and how to teach all children to read and write.
The Head Teacher and the Read Write Inc. manager monitor progress together until every child can read. No child is left behind to struggle.
