Information for Parents

October 2023


We had fantastic attendance to our Parents’ Phonics Workshop.

The parents all learnt about how we teach reading at Donnington.

They enjoyed learning about phonics and how they can help at home.

The parents now feel they can support  their children to move forward for future success.


Please contact me (Ms Adae) if you would like any further information.



We are committed to improving standards in Reading, Phonics and Writing within our school.

We use the highly successful Read Write Inc as we are dedicated to ensuring that every child is able to read by the end of Key Stage 1.  Our staff have received Ruth Miskin Training and as a school we are working towards raising standards in reading and writing for our children. 

Our Foundation Stage and Key Stage 1 children will have daily Read, Write, Inc. sessions and we will support our most vulnerable readers with extra one–to–one teaching every day.  Children with gaps in their phonic knowledge, reading, writing or fluency in Key Stage 2 will also be supported through high quality Read, Write, Inc. teaching and intervention.

We use the Read Write Inc Phonics programme as soon as the children start in Reception and this will continue through Year 1 and into Year 2. The teaching of this programme is a method of learning centred around letter sounds and phonics, blending them together to read and write words and using these learnt sounds in their reading and writing.

Using Read Write Inc phonics the children learn to read effortlessly so that they can put all their energy into comprehending what they read.   It also allows them to spell effortlessly so that they can put their energy into composing what they write.

The children are assessed and grouped according to their ability. They will work with a teacher or teaching assistant on the Read Write Inc phonics programme. The children will be assessed regularly by the Read Write Inc leader Ms Adae and will then be put into new groups. In addition to the Read Write Inc programme the children will also be working on writing skills in their classes with their own class teacher to continue to develop their skills further.
