Intent for Reading

As part of our Gold Level Rights Respecting School, our intent is to ensure that every child receives a well-rounded learning experience and becomes a fluent reader, a skilled writer and confident speaker, so that children can be the best that they can be and have aspirations of themselves now, and in the future.

It is our intention to immerse children in the wonders of quality texts to instil a love of reading, a passion for discovery and a confidence to explore and use their imagination in the world around them.

Our Reading Intent is:

  • for our children to be the best readers that they can be as part of our Gold Level Rights Respecting School;
  • to foster a curiosity and thirst for knowledge and understanding about the world in which we live;
  • to promote reading for pleasure;
  • to create positive reading attitudes;
  • to apply their phonic knowledge as part of a wider range of reading strategies in order to become a fluent and confident reader;
  • to broaden vocabulary through the use of and understanding of new words;
  • to develop comprehension skills so that children can have an informed understanding of what they read, enabling them to participate in discussions about texts;
  • that children understand the positive benefits of reading on their own wellbeing;
  • to promote confidence and lifelong positive attitudes to reading through access to a wide range of literature and enthusiastic reading role models within our school and the wider community;
  • to foster positive reading partnerships with parents and carers.
