Reading and Phonics

Reading Intent
We aim to help our pupils become confident, independent readers who read widely and often as well as sharing an enjoyment of reading for pleasure. Through reading, we want our pupils to have the opportunity to develop culturally, emotionally, intellectually, socially and spiritually. Pupils will have the skills to decode words in order to be able to read fluently. Reading will also enable our pupils to become enthusiastic and reflective readers, through contact with challenging and substantial texts that they are able to deeply comprehend.
