Read Write Inc (RWI)


As a Read Write Inc. school we are passionate about reading.

Reading is valued very highly and we understand the importance of children getting enjoyment from their reading.

Bethersden Primary School is now the Read Write Inc Model School in the whole of the Kent area. This means we are a reading school through teaching and learning being based on the Read Write Inc programme.

We know that many children have been sharing their fantastic Read Write Inc learning at home. This might be through their new sounds they have concentrated on or many exciting texts they have orally rehearsed.

Children have now been experiencing the programme since May 2012 and made fantastic progress. Every 6 weeks we undertake an assessment week that on average shows that 87% of the children have progressed. This means they will now be moving throughout the levels in the scheme and even onto the Literacy and Language programme. This is significant progress from the children.
