Policies and Guidance

Reading has a high priority in school and all children have a daily 45 minute reading lesson.  For children who are struggling with reading and phonics, Read Write Inc. is used as a catch-up intervention programme during this lesson.


Reading Schemes

We use Collins Big Cat as our home reading scheme which has an extensive range of fiction and non-fiction texts.  Our expectation is that children are reading at home at least 3+ times per week and reading records are checked on a weekly basis.

PhonicBooks are also used in school for identified pupils reading with an adult.  The highly-structured phonic sequence ensures reading success and building of confidence.
