Following a successful pilot in 2020, Willmott Park has introduced a synthetic phonics reading programme entitled INSPIRED. With the guidance of our speech pathologist Morgan Hurst and psychologist Danielle Soliman, who both have extensive experience working with literacy programmes and research design, INSPIRED utilizes evidenced based resources to improve student success with Reading.
The programme targets a range of skills needed for English development including decoding, comprehension, grammar, spelling, punctuation, and writing. Students are assessed and placed into small groups for twelve weeks. Following participation in the programme, students are re-assessed to measure the degree of improvement and future supports if needed. INSPIRED uses sound resources and offers ongoing training opportunities to enrich our students love and passion for English whilst providing them with strategies to become competent readers.
