School policy on the teaching of phonics, reading and writing

This policy can be used by good or outstanding Read Write Inc. schools. Please make sure you adapt it carefully to reflect what you do. Headteachers of schools requiring improvement and in special measures will find it useful as a planning document.

The policy could also be adapted for use in Wales to present data for Estyn.

Schools will need to amend and insert information in areas highlighted yellow.

Use our Tracker for supporting Read Write Inc. teachers, Tracker for supporting Literacy and Language teachers, and the Read Write Inc. reading progress grid to support you in your role as reading leader.
