At Mounjoy, we believe that every young person should be exposed to literacy learning and most of our children and young people are able to develop the skills they need to read and write. At Mountjoy reading and writing is linked to communication development.

We do this by teaching a systematic synthetic phonics programme called Read, Write, Inc (RWI) which teaches our pupils to read accurately and fluently with good comprehension. It teaches them to spell correctly and compose their ideas for writing step-by-step.

In our secondary department (ages 11 and over) most pupils do Read, Write, Inc Fresh Start, which build on the phonics programme and has more age-appropriate texts.
