Please see the reading policy for our intent, implementation and impact statements.
The ability to read is fundamental to pupils’ development as independent learners. In order to read across the curriculum with fluency, understanding and enjoyment pupils need to orchestrate the range of strategies: applying phonic knowledge and skills, applying graphic knowledge and developing word recognition, drawing on knowledge of context and grammatical knowledge.
Reading development is closely related to that of writing, for it is by reflecting upon and talking about the texts they encounter that children come to understand how writers write and the special relationship that exists between author and reader.
