Children at St Mary's Primary develop the ability to read, understand and respond to all types of texts as well as developing information retrieval strategies. 


Children have access to a banded reading scheme that uses a range of high quality, engaging texts (fiction and non fiction) to take home to share with parents.


In school, all children have access to well stocked class reading book shelves, a weekly library slot and the opportunity to take a library book home.Children in FS2 have access to story sacks to take home.


Decoding skills for reading are taught in FS2 and KS1 through the Read Write Inc phonics scheme. FS2 and KS1 do a daily high quality guided reading session and every child has a home/school reading record. We have a reading volunteer programme and 1:1 reading for vulnerable readers.


Children in KS2 share a high quality class text and partake in a weekly reading comprehension lesson.


Each World Book Day in March is celebrated and the profile of reading is heightened. Staff role model being a life long reader and often have discussions about books and make recommendations to children.


The specific reading programmes of study for each year group can be found under the 'Our Curriculum - Year Group' tab
