Read Write Inc

Raising Standards in literacy for Every Child

Read Write Inc., developed by Ruth Miskin, provides a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy. It is used by more than a quarter of the UK's primary schools and is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

Each Read Write Inc. programme meets the higher expectations of the National Curriculum and uses effective assessment to accelerate every child's progress and prepare them for the 2016 National Curriculum Tests. 

Here in Milton Keynes Primary PRU, it is delivered in very small groups or on a one to one basis. Children are assessed and grouped accordingly, and with the help of Fred (a soft toy that accompanies the programme) and flashcards, the children are keen to engage. The “pure sounds” of letters are taught, and this quickly creates fluent readers, willing writers and confident speakers.

Over the past year, this intervention has proven to be very effective as one of our interventions in supporting children to become more confident and able in their reading, writing and speaking.
