Linaker is a Read Write Inc. school, we use this highly successful systematic phonics program from Ruth Miskin Training to ensure that phonics is taught and assessed thoroughly throughout the school.
Staff have been expertly trained in the delivery of the scheme and receive regular support and further training from our school lead Mrs Worthington and our RWI consultant. We believe that delivering this scheme with fidelity and passion is key to raising standards in our children's early literacy.
All children in Reception and KS1 are taught using the scheme. In addition the scheme is used for older children who need to catch up. Once children complete the RWI phonics programme they move into a reading comprehension group. Most children complete the scheme by the end of the first term of Year 2. They then join a reading comprehension group.
