What is a model school?

Schools that demonstrate best practice in teaching Read Write Inc. Phonics are recognised as Model Schools by Ruth Miskin Training.

We are incredibly proud of our 49 English Model Schools’ results in the 2016 Phonics Screening Check. 

How do Model Schools achieve these results?

Model Schools:

  • ●  Place teaching children to read at the heart of the curriculum

  • ●  Teach Read Write Inc. Phonics ve days a week to a consistently high standard

  • ●  Release their reading leaders to run weekly practice sessions and coach sta .

    A Model School can be in any part of the country - it is possible to achieve high results and teach your children to read regardless of their circumstances.

Model Schools know that the ability to read is the biggest driver of social mobility – “Reading ability at 10 is a predictor of earnings at 42” (Institute of Fiscal Studies).
