Whether early reading acquisition, systematic guided reading or engendering inference, our children have a love of reading and read for meaning. We attribute this to our signature pedagogy and a whole school approach to teaching reading. Attainment in Reading is exceptionally high and we believe we can help share with you within your EYFS, KS1 or KS2 setting.
