Harewood Infant School is proud to be a Read Write Inc. school. We teach the Read Write Inc. Phonics programme in Reception and Year 1. Year 2 pupils progress to Read Write Inc. Spelling.                                       

Read Write Inc. adopts a consistent whole-school approach to teaching reading and spelling.

Careful assessment, focused teaching and individual support when necessary ensure the best possible progress for every child.
