At Thornhill we place great value on teaching children to read and love books.

Thornhill uses Read Write Inc. to provide a structured and systematic approach to teaching literacy. It is used by more than a quarter of the UK’s primary schools and is designed to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

The Read Write Inc. programme meets the higher expectations of the new National Curriculum and uses effective assessment to accelerate every child’s progress and prepare them for the 2016 National Curriculum tests.


Read Write Inc. is one of the School’s use of the Pupil Premium Grant (PPG); the PPG is received by the school to cater for the needs of our pupils from disadvantaged backgrounds.  The programme has been credited by Ofsted as a tangible means of allowing disadvantaged children achieve to the same level as their peers.
