Read, Write, Inc. Phonics

At Cross Lane Primary School, we use Read, Write Inc. as our Systematic Synthetic Phonics programme. The programme is followed with fidelity and rigor by teachers and teaching assistants. Children are assessed and streamed into ability groups every half term. 

Children who have been identified as "at risk" recieve daily intervention to ensure they keep up with their peers. We continue to use Read Write Inc's intervention programme.

To ensure learning is embedded, children are exposed to flashcards and other reading oppurtunities throughout the day. All phonics teachers send a home-learning video via SeeSaw each week, for children to continue their practise at home.

Once children become profficient blenders, they begin to take home reading books that are matched to their phonic ability. 


From Year 2 onwards, children are taught to read in daily whole-class reading sessions. Teachers follow a carefully thought out sequence of teaching to ensure children learn key reading skills. Comprehension is taught through high quality texts, excerpts and books, children use VIPERS skills to understand what they have read.

Children are assessed using a variety of methods to support teacher judgement. 

  • Accelerated Reader STAR Reader Tests (half termly)
  • NFER Assessments (termly).
