‘A love for God, ourselves and others’



Our Phonics Lead is Mrs Cooper

At St Peter's we have adopted the ReadWriteInc programme to develop our phonics and reading skills.



What is Read Write Inc?

The Read Write Inc. programme is for primary school children learning to read.  It is a phonics based programme which helps children learn to read whilst also developing a wide range of vocabulary and encouraging a love of stories. It was developed by Ruth Miskin and more information on this can be found at .


How do we know RWI works?

Schools embedding this programme have been recognised by OFSTED in the HMI ‘Reading by Six Report’ (November 2010) as an example of how the best schools teach reading.


The links and documents  on this page will hopefully help you to understand the learning intentions and inform you regarding the content of this scheme.

The impact on adopting RWInc can be seen below.


Year 1 children passed the Phonics Screening Check June 2023 with a 83% pass rate.
