Read, Write, Inc News

We are a “Get Reading. Keep Reading. Change Everything.” school.
We use the highly successful Read Write Inc. Phonics programme to teach our children to read, write and spell. Our children do well in the phonics screening check and by Year 2, the majority are fluent readers.
Ruth Miskin Training recognise us for teaching the programme with fidelity and passion – we know what it takes to make reading and writing pleasurable and rewarding for our children.

This badge recognises that we:

  • Raise standards in reading and writing for our children
  • Are all expertly trained by Ruth Miskin Training – including our headteacher (Mrs Swinton)
  • Gain the latest programme updates through regular visits from our Ruth Miskin trainer
  • Support our most vulnerable readers with extra one-to-one teaching every day.

We’re holding our Annual General Meeting on Monday 25th September 2017, 7pm within the School’s Staff Room. 

Always delighted to welcome anyone new, the Parent Council is a friendly group of parents/carers which supports the school in its work with parents.

We play a key role in consulting with and reporting to the wider parent audience.  The Parent Council represents the views of parents to the Head Teacher, East Lothian Council and Education Scotland and promotes contact between the school, parents, pupils, nursery education providers and the community.

Don’t be daunted … come along to find out more and bring a friend along too!  If you can’t make the AGM you can also email                                           parentcouncil@haddingtoninfant.elcschool.org.uk
