At St Michael's we recognise that reading is the keystone of learning and therefore it is vital that every child becomes a reader.


By becoming a proficient reader, children will:

Have access to the whole curriculum

Participate in own learning

Develop confidence

Improve self efficacy

Make a contribution now, and in the future

Develop imagination

Increase experiences through books

Be able to access the next stage of their education


This will be done through:

Personalised reading programmes

Teaching all reading strategies

Specific time allocations

Specific adult to child allocation

1:1 reading tuition

Target setting

Matching text to child need

Child self assessment

Frequent assessment
