Read Write Inc. Phonics, Literacy & Language, Fresh Start and Spelling are highly
successful literacy programmes for 4-13 year-olds created by Ruth Miskin and published by Oxford
University Press. The training and support from Ruth Miskin Training, rated Outstanding by the
Department for Education, ensure the programmes have the best chance of success in schools.
The four Read Write Inc. programmes are carefully matched to the new curriculum, giving your
children the best chance of success in the national tests. They show teachers, teaching assistants
and parents step-by-step how to teach all children to become fluent readers, confident speakers
and willing writers.
Read Write Inc. Phonics for our children in Reception to Year 2 and for our children in Years 3 and
4 who need to catch up.
Read Write Inc. Phonics is used by over a quarter of the UK’s primary schools. It is a
comprehensive literacy programme, weaving decoding, comprehension, writing and spelling
together seamlessly. Ruth Miskin developed the programme during her time as a headteacher in
Tower Hamlets. She believes that in order for a school to be successful, every headteacher needs
to adopt a consistent whole-school approach to teaching reading, writing and spelling. Fidelity to the
teaching programme, rigorous assessment, tracking and one-to-one tutoring ensure that schools
guarantee progress for every child.
