Phonics and Reading Scheme

At Sarratt C of E Primary School we use a synthetic phonics programme to teach reading called ‘Read Write Inc.’ produced by Ruth Miskin. 

Read Write Inc. phonics is a method of teaching reading which is centred around learning the sounds of the letters (phonics), and then blending them together to individual sounds in order to write them.

How it works

RWI is taught throughout Reception and Year 1, continuing into Year 2 for children who remain on the programme. The children are assessed and work at a level that is appropriate.

Storybooks and non-fiction texts are closely matched to the group’s development.

The children will be regularly assessed to check they have made progress and will be moved on as is necessary.  

The 5 Key Principles of Read Write Inc.

  • Purpose– know the purpose of every activity and share it with the children, so they know the one thing they should be thinking about
  • Participation– ensure every child participates throughout the lesson. Partnership work is fundamental to learning
  • Praise- ensure children are praised for effort and learning, not ability
  • Pace- teach at an effective pace and devote every moment to teaching and learning
  • Passion- be passionate about teaching so children can be engaged words.  The children also learn to break down (segment) words into

Maths Curriculum


Our Maths Curriculum is based on a Mastery approach and uses the 2020 NCETM Maths Prioritisation Curriculum. Mastering maths means pupils acquiring a deep, long-term, secure and adaptable understanding of the subject.


The phrase ‘teaching for mastery’ describes the elements of classroom practice and school organisation that combine to give pupils the best chances of mastering maths.


Achieving mastery means acquiring a solid enough understanding of the maths that’s been taught to enable pupils to move on to more advanced material.
