Read Write Inc. Model School

Orgill Primary School has been appointed as a Read Write Inc. Model School for the academic year 2018-19.  We are the only model school in Cumbria. This is as a result of our excellent standard of teaching of the Read Write Inc. Phonics programme and our outstanding Year 1 phonics screening results.

Read Write Inc., developed by Ruth Miskin, provides a whole-school approach to teaching literacy for 4-11 year olds to create fluent readers, confident speakers and willing writers.

Each member of staff is trained by Ruth Miskin Training, rated outstanding by Ofsted, to ensure consistent practice across the whole school.


Every half term we hold an open event to allow staff from other schools to come along and observe Read Write Inc. Phonics  in action.  You can see teaching at every stage of the programme and talk to our Reading Leader, Holly Collins. We ask visitors to arrive promptly, ready to start our tour at 9.00am.  Visits usually last about 90 minutes.  There are a maximum of 12 places available for each open event and these must be booked in advance via email at


These events are always full so please book early. On occasions, we are able to negotiate alternative dates.  Please contact us to discuss this further.
