Read Write Inc Phonics at St Peter and St Paul

This programme is used in St Peter and St Paul to support the route to good word recognition and recall.

Phonics is the process by which speech is written down. In English there are 44 speech sounds and all but four or five of the 44 sounds are pronounced consistently across all accents.  English, with its 44 speech sounds, has insufficient letters for each sound, so groups of letters have been combined to write the extra 18. To make it even more difficult, some sounds are written down in more than one way.  For example, the speech sound ‘f’ is spelt f, ff and ph.

Read Write Inc has five underlying principles – the 5 Ps.


Praise – a lot




The children in Early Years, Key Stage 1 and those who are nearing the end of the programme in Key Stage 2 have Read Write Inc lessons every day.
