Read Write Inc Visit – 25.1.23
Dear parents/carers,

At the beginning of the academic year we embarked on a change to overhaul how we taught early reading and phonics. That change was Read Write Inc, a nationally recognised programme used by thousands of schools to teach early reading.

Earlier this week, we were visited by our consultant from Read Write Inc for a development day. She spent time visiting groups, observing our pupils and giving further coaching to staff.

The day was a real success and we are delighted at the feedback¬†she gave, particularly about the quality of our teaching. She told us that ‘teaching is slick’ and she was very impressed¬†by how well the programme is being implemented across Reception and KS1. She said that routines and expectations are well-embedded in every group and it was obvious that both the teaching staff and pupils were enjoying the¬†lessons.

As ever, your children were a real credit to the school and the consultant commented on every child being engaged in each lesson she visited.

Implementing Read Write Inc. this successfully, is down to our reading team of teachers and teaching assistants. Their hard work has enabled the programme to make a successful start and set the foundation for all of our young readers. 

My thanks also to Mrs Douglas, who has provided the leadership and coaching to ensure Read Write Inc is a success for all pupils. As a Head Teacher, I am passionate about children being able to read, therefore I will continue to support our staff to deliver for your children.

I look forward to seeing our progress moving forward and thank you for your support during this change.

If you have any questions about Read Write Inc, then we would be happy to chat with you.

Mr Bennett

Head Teacher
