At Roundhay we use the Read Write Inc. (RWI) programme to get children off to a flying start with their reading and writing. RWI is a structured programme which integrates phonics, comprehension, writing, grammar, punctuation, vocabulary and handwriting. It helps us to create a consistent approach across our school as we all work together to ensure our children are confident readers and writers.

Read Write Inc Phonics


After one year of implementing Read Write Inc, we improved our phonics results by 11% and achieved our best ever results since the school opened.  We are very happy to have been awarded the training accreditation badge.

In 2018/19, 100% of our Year 1 children achieved the expected standard in phonics. We were also the host school for the Read Write Inc Phonics Roadshow in Leeds.
