We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers with the best chance of success in the KS1 tests.

Ruth Miskin Training recognise us for teaching the Read Write Inc. programmes with fidelity and passion – we know what it takes to make literacy pleasurable and rewarding for our children.

This badge says that in 2014 - 2015 we:

  • Raise standards in reading and writing for our children
  • Are all expertly trained by Ruth Miskin Training – including our headteacher 
  • Gain the latest programme updates through regular visits from our Ruth Miskin trainer
  • Release our literacy coordinators to ensure our high standards are maintained.
