Read Write Inc

Read Write Inc & Fresh Start Programmes


At Skelton Primary School we use the ‘Read, Write Inc’ and ‘Fresh Start’ Programmes to teach reading and writing in Early Years and Key Stage 1.  . The Read Write Inc. programme allows every child to become a confident and fluent reader at the first attempt, through synthetic phonics.  Every child who completes Read Write Inc. learns to read fluently and confidently.


In EYFS and KS1, children will follow a daily phonic programme to create fluent, enthusiastic readers, confident speakers and willing writers. In KS2, the ‘Fresh Start Programme’ is taught to groups of children who still need to develop their phonological awareness skills.


We have chosen to use the Read Write Inc. programme because:


    • It is a systematic and lively reading programme
    • All staff (teachers and assistants) are trained by one of the Read Write Inc trainers
    • The children read and write for up to an hour each day, grouped according to their reading level.
