In EYFS and Key Stage 1, we use Read, Write Inc. (RWI) to support the teaching of phonics and early reading. RWI is a structured approach which means we can teach children in groups which suit their reading stages, enabling the vast majority to make rapid progress.

At the end of Year 1, all children take the national phonics test. Those who do not meet the expected standard are re-tested at the end of Year 2.
