Achieve, Believe, Contribute


At Mitcheldean Endowed Primary School we believe reading is key for personal fulfilment and academic success. To achieve this, phonics is emphasised in the early teaching of reading via our synthetic based phonics programme ‘Read Write Inc.’ (RWI).

This involves children learning to recognise sounds and blend them together to read words. Children are taught in small groups which reflect their phonic knowledge and reading fluency. We regularly assess children so that they are taught in a RWI group which matches their phonic knowledge
