Read Write Inc

Here at Gnosall St Lawrence CE Primary Academy, we are proud to be a Read, Write, Inc Model School. Read, Write, Inc, (RWI), is a Literacy programme designed to get children reading quickly. The children take part in daily phonics sessions at the level appropriate for them, followed by a daily Literacy based lesson . The reading and writing resources have been carefully designed by Ruth Miskin and her team, to enable children to learn new sounds, apply them speedily to reading books that they can be confident with, and then to write about those books.

Being a Model School means that at least 95% of the children in our school are at or above where they should be on the programme. It also means that other schools can come to visit us and see our wonderful RWI lessons. We’ve even been filmed by Ruth Miskin’s team for training sessions!

Most importantly, the children love RWI and often name it as their favourite part of the school day when giving their comments for their school reports.
