The Independent review of the teaching of early reading was an influential report by Sir Jim Rose, former HMI director of inspection at Ofsted, into the teaching of reading in primary schools in England.

The report recommended that synthetic phonics "should be taught as the prime approach in learning to decode (to read) and encode (to write/spell) print". Phonics should be taught systematically and discretely, however, it should be set within a "broad and rich" "multisensory" curriculum. The report stressed the importance of language development (including speaking and listening).[1] The report also recommended that the "searchlights" model of reading should be replaced with the simple view of reading.[2]
